TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching middle school Language Arts for 23 years...and I'm still alive :-)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is to immediately engage my students' minds as soon as the lesson starts. I love experiential learning where the students figure things out by themselves with just a little guidance from me.
