TEACHING EXPERIENCE

44 years in the classroom... loved every minute of it. Major classes taught: English 12AP and English 11, although I've taught every grade and every level from 9th grade to 12th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Making the English classroom dynamic and alive through my high energy, my creativity, my high motivation, and my love of literature. My aim: to get kids involved in their own education and to make kids like English and literature... I try always to remember that students may not remember what you taught them but they will remember how you treated them...AND that students need to be accountable for their own education.
