Among the three of us, we have more than 40 years of teaching experience at the high school level. One of us has taught inclusion classes for about ten years, an experience that has taught her to be especially proficient at differentiating lessons. In addition to literature classes at all secondary grade levels, among the three of us we have taught journalism, led yearbook staffs, and sponsored clubs.
The classroom is important to each of us. Our varied strengths enable us to create excellent resources collaboratively. Our teaching styles vary from traditional to practical to hands-on. Each of us, though, is grounded in best-practices, realizing that we are not teaching books but concepts and skills to young men and women whom we hope to inspire to be life-long learners.
Teacher of the Year; STAR teacher; presenter at two state-level workshops
Two of us have earned Educational Specialist degrees. The other holds a Masters degree. All three of us are gifted certified.
We don't profess to have all the answers nor to be the best teachers in the world. We simply love teaching, designing lessons, and supporting other educators. If you, our customers, fellow educators, and colleagues, have any suggestions for us, we welcome them. We welcome the opportunity to expand our minds, grow our vision, and adapt to an ever-changing world in order to better educate our students.
