TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Sixteen years of teaching high school ELA, including remedial, exceptional, honors, and AP. I have former students in medical school and serving life sentences. It's been interesting.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I run a relaxed but focused class room: there are yoga balls and pillows, along with old school vocabulary and writing requirements. Independent reading is mandatory, as is test prep, conversations about what they read, and lots and lots and lots of writing. Also, it's kind of a nerd's paradise in my room. References to Doctor Who, Hogwarts and many other fantasy worlds abound.
