I've been teaching High Schol English Advanced Placement and Colleg Prep. for 12 years. I serve a High School that is 75% free-reduced lunch which presents constant teaching hurdles typically overcome with consitent focus and extensive planning.
I like to use Literature and Non-fiction to teach ande re-teach essential skills certainly, but what is more important is how Literature is personal and used to shap and mold young men and woment into the best representations of themselves they can be.
I have been honored by the School Board as a "Distinguished Educator."
I have a Masters Degree in Education, I am a veteran AP Reader. I have recently submitted for the National Boards teaching Certificate.
