21 years teaching high school English! It's funny how it just goes and goes and goes. :-) I am always evolving -- on purpose!
I'm obsessed with Shakespeare and computers, and I really work on both brains. We get into deep analysis of words and ideas and figurative language, and I also experiment with Minecraft and Snapchat and Mixed Reality. I love working with students to write hardcore multi-draft academic research papers and I also love getting them to write gritty poems in alleyways.
I hold National Board Certification in Secondary School English Language Arts. I also recently scored in the top two percent for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) in writing.
I have decided to continue my education and will soon become Dr. Sanders with a doctoral degree dissertation focusing on New Pedagogies in Digital Learning Environments.
I love my wife, my son, and our dog. I skateboard and make lots of jokes. I don't have enough hours in the day to make all the songs and movies and novels I have in my head, but I will just keep having fun no matter what. :-)
