I also currently teach a couple of community college courses as well.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

To be honest, I have great lessons, projects, and activities I've done with my students throughout the years, but have never really had the time or need to sit down and write detailed lesson plans. Writing is not my forte, so I tend to shy away from it. However, a few colleagues have told me how good and unique my lessons and activities are, and suggested I put them on teachers pay teachers. Initially, I was hesitant, but then I realized that I do have a 10 year old son for whom I've been trying to do what I can to save college money for. So I figured this would be a good opportunity to earn a little bit extra to add to his college fund. So here I am, and thank you for your support.
