I taught language arts and theatre arts at the middle school level in a wonderful New Jersey public school for ten years. Then, I homeschooled my own children from third through sixth grade. For the past three years, I have taught 7th and 8th grade science at an amazing performing arts school where we mix arts with academics at every opportunity.

My style usually combines basic comprehension of a topic followed by higher level projects that can be highly individualized. I enjoy research, field trips, webquests, interviews, performances, and other projects that allow a student to delve deeply into an area of interest.
