TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 7, 9, and 10 English honors and CP. I also tutor for AP, and prior to teaching middle and high school, worked as a resource teacher for K-5 in Language Arts and math. I currently teach high school English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Learning should be fun, so I make it that way:)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. and M.A. in English M.Ed. in Secondary Education specializing in Best Practices

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I don't teach to climb the ladder. I don't teach to get summers off. I don't teach for the money. I don't teach because I want to be something else and this is a stepping stone. I don't teach because it's easy. I teach because I love learning. I teach because I want to influence young people. I teach because I love hard work. I teach because I care. I teach because it is who I am. Teaching is the single most life-fulfilling act on the planet. For me, it is an extension of who I am, what I think I always wanted to be. Teaching is not a job; it is my life.
