I have taught English at both the high school and college levels for 20 years. This experience ranges from teaching AP and honors level students to pupils in special education inclusion classes.
My teaching style varies depending on the students in the class and the nature of the lessons being taught.
Williams Field High School’s "Teacher of the Year," “Employee of the Month,” and “I Am Williams Field” Awards; Apache Junction Unified School District’s “Employee of the Month”; Apache Junction High School's “Extraordinary Teacher” and “Gold Nugget” Awards for Professional Excellence in Teaching.
I hold a B.A. in English and an M.Ed. from Arizona State University. I have also taken graduate courses in English Literature at Oxford University in Oxford, England.
My articles, fiction, and poetry have appeared in the English Journal, Mused, Canyon Echo, 101 Words, and Treoir magazine (a publication of Comhaltas, an international organization headquartered in Dublin, Ireland which promotes traditional Irish music and culture).
