TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Sandstorm Learning is the collaborative effort of a husband and wife teaching team from Texas with more than ten years of experience in the classroom. Between the two of them, James and Jennifer have taught every grade in high school, 9-12, and all levels from STAAR remediation (for students who had repeatedly failed the state test) to pre-AP/pre-IB English and IB psychology. Both teachers have a proven track record of challenging diverse populations of students and fostering measurable growth on state assessments.

MY TEACHING STYLE

These lessons will target a variety of classroom styles appropriate the high school English classroom. James and Jennifer have had classes ranging in size from eleven to thirty-seven students, with most sitting around thirty students per class. As such, the majority of lessons, will are planned around large class sizes.
