I have been teaching in my current district since 1992 (am I that old?!). I have taught a variety of subjects within the Language Arts department. In addition, I have served on many committees, including our district's Literacy Council, and have served as a department chair.
I believe in establishing a connection with my students and teaching with a sense of humor. My classroom is usually an active one, with student having frequent partner discussions that often lead to lively group discussions.
Master Teacher in the state of Ohio.
Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Ohio University in 1991. Bachelor of Science in Communications from Ohio University in 1991. Master's in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College in 2004. Many additional courses, seminars, and workshops.
I'm always looking for innovative activities and methods to reach my students. I'm married with three daughters. :)
