TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught middle and high school English and high school social studies. I currently teach AP Language and Composition, AP Literature and Composition (both also dual credit), and geography and world history, speech, and English remediation. I've also taught 6th grade writing, 8th grade language arts, government, world literature, popular literature, and composition.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to give my students as much control and say as possible. My class is student-centered and, as much as possible, project based.
