TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Spanish and German for close to 30 years in a public high school, which, before budget cuts, was proud to offer four years of German, French and Spanish. Now we only offer four years of Spanish. In addition, I spent 20 years coaching boys and girls cross country, track and boys basketball. I enjoy looking for new and interesting ways to learn and explain difficult topic and grammatical themes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In the last 15 years my teaching style has evolved into what I call "conversation-based learning", a style which I developed after years of trying various methods which simply did not match my personality or belief system. This style emphasizes sound teaching and modeling, combined with grammatically-based notes, clear explanation, and relevant written and listening practice. Class periods are divided into many little parts so that there is constant movement and little down time. This, combined with techniques to help me fade out of the picture, allows for student-to-student, one-on-one conversations to take place during the class period. Progression of this format through units will see student confidence levels grow and their own conversational abilities come to life. Because of my belief in understanding the concepts of grammar, students come out with a very well-rounded background in the language.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My best honors are when students return or write to me telling how they are using the language that they learned in my classes. It is not uncommon for college students to report that they find themselves teaching other college classmates their grammar because they do not understand it.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Teaching degrees in Spanish and German. Master of Arts degree in Teaching. Special interest in Art History, Poetry and Music as they relate to their native languages.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Married and father of three young girls and a boy, all of whom are homeschooled by my wife.
