TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Although I taught English composition, literature, and creative writing as a college English instructor for over a decade, I have also been a home-school parent and have taught two grades in the K-12 school system. I enjoy coming up with a variety of ways to make teaching core standards not only fun, but also a valuable literary experience. And above all, it should be simple, for part of the point is to help children develop a love for reading and knowledge.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on, meeting core objectives, keeping things simple, developing a love for reading in students

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Not sure what to put here for honors/awards. I have received recognition at various times for teaching.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies (social work) Masters in English Training certificates in online education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Since I am no longer in the classroom, I test my curricula in the classrooms of friends, relatives, and former co-workers. When they find a common core standard that they need met, I get to work and create what they need.
