I've taught middle schoolers for 31 years with the last 27 years being in the same school system. 15 years were spent teaching science and the last 15 years have focused on literacy.
I like to use the workshop approach to teaching literacy. I get to know my students well and teach to their strengths.
I am National Board Certified since 2013 My class and I won first place in the nation in the Amway/Newsweek "Environmental Class Act Competition" in 1991
