TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching 7th grade for almost 30 years. My work regarding students has been featured in Mac|Life and on North Country Public Radio. Other writing has appeared in Adirondack Life, Thousand Island Life.com, The Ultimate History Project, The Watertown Daily Times, and many others. My book, River Views: A History of the 1000 Islands in 3-D won a Silver Medal in the 2012 Independent Book Publishers Awards for Best Regional Non-Fiction in the Northeast. More information on writing credits at tom-french.net.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Make it Fun. Put it outside the box. A former student now in 8th grade recently came to visit and said, when seeing "Upside-Down Write" on the objectives board, "I loved upside-down writes" (it's just freewrites on paper that's upside down).
