TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 20-year teaching veteran. I have taught English to freshmen through seniors at all levels, I have nine years of experience teaching AP Language and AP Literature, and I have taught three years of freshman composition at the college level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My writing courses have always been very process oriented, helping students work through each step of their papers, outlining, drafting, and revising to a final product. One of my favorite teaching activities is to conference with students, discussing with each individual the specific issues they are facing in their writing and problem solving to help make their paper better. My literature study has evolved to a whole novel approach, assigning large chunks of the book for the students to read at one time and using class time to supplement their learning and understanding of the text by making historical and literary connections.
