I have taught high school English for 15 years and have taught everything including 9th - 12th grade English, English for ESL learners, AP Language and Composition, Creative Writing and Speech and Debate.
My classroom style is very colorful and active. I am a very social and visual person, so I like to incorporate a lot of hands-on activities and partner/group work into my lessons. I try to make my lessons/units multi-sensory experiences for my students, so I do things like play music and audio recordings of literature, show video clips, art work and cartoons that relate to unit, bring in food that relates to the unit etc. I like to have fun, so I try to do things that students will remember and enjoy!
