I have over fifteen years of experience in education. I spent several years teaching in high school, I was a Family Resource and Youth Services Center Coordinator in both elementary, middle, and high schools, and I have taught adults for many years. Currently, I teach at the university level.
I prefer to have my students work hands-on. I believe that "doing" is often a more effective strategy than lecturing.
