TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an English teacher for six years in a variety of settings. For the first two years of my career, I taught middle school Language Arts in suburban/rural Connecticut. I then taught ninth, tenth, and twelfth grade honors, college prep, and Advanced Placement literature. Recently, I moved to California and currently teach ninth grade at a start-up charter school in San Jose.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style can be described as a mix of classic and modern. I love pairing old texts with new, supplementing novels with current nonfiction. I think it's really important to connect what the kids are reading with what is going on with the world, so we always talk about social issues and things that can connect to their lives. My classroom is fairly student-centered, with kids driving the majority of activity and discussion.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.” -Franz Kafka
