TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Experience teaching in both an urban public charter school and a suburban public school I have seen a wide variety of students with a wide variety of obstacles to overcome and talents to utilize.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Given my professional experience history, I have experienced teaching on a shoe string budget and with all of the technology I could ever dream of available to me. In the end, I have learned that the best lesson plans still work for both schools and all students, it simply may take a few tweaks and a bit of creativity. As lovely as technology can be for assessing, I still require my students to pick up that pencil as often as possible and write their thoughts down the old fashion way.
