I've taught writing, reading, visual art, and comics from grades 3-8. I love it.
Engaged students are great students. My teaching style is highly interactive and engaging. I'm a hands-on, try-it-out, get-your-hands-dirty kind of guy. My teaching philosophy: What students most need to be successful is to be engaged in the subject. THE BEST WAY TO ENGAGE KIDS IS WITH FUN.
At the end of every semester my students leave me notes saying how much they loved the class. Those are the only honors that matter to me.
I earned a BFA in illustration (and I work as a part time author/illustrator.) I'm a self-taught writer.
I enjoy books, movies, comics, drawing, painting, writing, video games, board games, toys, and building cardboard forts. I have a wonderful wife, two wonderful sons with Autism, and a half-crazy cat. I love all of them to the moon and back.
