14 years experience teaching English at a vocational technical high school. Experience in the Language Arts Lab and traditional classroom. Certified Mindful Educator, Omega Institute.
My teaching style revolves around providing students with the tools they need to succeed. Meditation, writing sonnets, breathing exercises, and learning the skills of rhetoric and public speaking coincide in my classroom environment. Mindfulness plays just as great a role as the elements of literature.
