TEACHING EXPERIENCE

24 years of teaching experience including 4th grade, all-level ESL and GT, and junior high/high school English. I have also been a GT coordinator and TAKS coordinator (in the days before STAAR.) I currently teach English 2 and 3, 8th Grade Language and Jr. High GT. I am also a cross-examination debate coach.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that teaching is most effective when I build relationships with my students. I want to enjoy my job and want them to enjoy learning. I have never been a do-the-questions-at-the-back-of-the-chapter kind of teacher, so I have always developed my own materials. This made Teachers Pay Teachers a great fit for me. Hope you enjoy using my products.
