TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After I retired in 2007 from 32 years' full time teaching of English/Language Arts, I opened my store at TeachersPayTeachers and started selling. I continue to teach summer school every year, and I fill in occasionally as a long-term substitute as needed. I coached football and track for most of my career as well, so my approach to education has taken on attributes of "coaching" kids through skill-building experiences, rather than merely providing them with declarative knowledge. Adjustments to the evolving standards has never been a problem for me. (I believe the same is likely true for any true professional, by the way.) More often than not, I discover that the "new" requirements suit my methods rather well! The current interest in Common Core Standards is certainly a step forward. Although we still have a long way to go before our nation catches up with other more progressive educational systems of the world, I believe we are still "on the right track." We just need to get this train moving a little faster. See what more I have to say at Wohlsi's Blog!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Since a large share of my teaching materials consists of "close-reading" study guides, I thought I'd explain how I use them. I also thought I'd furnish information about my rather involved writing program. So I'm providing one free product, and one at a very reasonable price, that explain all. Please look for and download these: Dealing with Writing III: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Dealing-with-Writing-III-Methods-144636 and Reading Fearfully Close (Are Gene and Finny Gay?): http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Reading-Fearfully-Close-Are-Gene-and-Finny-Gay-Common-Core-Essentials-148944

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I always liked working out in my younger years, but have taken to walking, biking, and milder forms of exercise of late. I enjoy classical music. I have two grown children, girls, born 1978 and 1981, from a previous marriage. I'm remarried as of 2003, and have a new family of three step-daughters, one out and on her own, one recently graduated from college, and one finishing college.
