TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching at my current public high school for 16 years, and have a total of 20 years experience in the classroom. Most of my experience is teaching high school English and journalism classes; however, for several years I taught an art history class and was also a librarian/media specialist. I teach all levels--from honors students to special education students; therefore, I'm constantly modifying my assignments to fit my students' needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I will never stop trying to foster creativity and critical thinking in my classroom no matter how many practice standardized tests I must give. In my opinion, it is more important to prepare students who can think independently and creatively than to prepare students who can score well on a two-day test in three subject areas.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from St. Ambrose University in 1994, double-majoring in English and Mass Communications: Journalism. After teaching in a small school in a special education classroom, I decided to go back to school to earn my teaching endorsement. My roles in education have included being a librarian, middle school English and reading, middle school special ed., and for the past 15 years as a high school English and journalism teacher with about six years of art history thrown in there, as well.
