TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught for over 15 years in a highly rated public high school in NJ! At this point in my career, I have now taught English grades 9-12 at all levels, including: low level with co-teaching, college prep, honors, and AP. I currently teach English Honors I, College Prep English III, and AP Lit and Comp IV. I am also the program coordinator for Peer Leadership - a program for senior students to mentor and guide freshmen. I've run many teacher workshops on Higher Order Thinking and Questioning, Rethinking Homework, Classroom Management, Research and Inquiry, and more.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in an active, student-centered classroom!
