TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for seven years at a mix of public and independent schools in Maine. I'm dual certified for English and Social Studies, and currently teach English to freshmen at a large public school. For the past four years, however, I taught macroeconomics and finance to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer to have students do interactive learning--to learn by doing as much as possible.
