TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught English at high schools in the Chicago suburbs and currently teach as an adjunct Comp/rhetoric instructor at area community colleges. I'm also currently a curriculum and assessment consultant and have worked with ACT, NAGB, McGraw Hill, MacNeil Lehrer Productions, Scott Foresman, and more.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My pedagogy is creative but learning-focused. I prize scalability and accessibility, and adapt my own lesson plans constantly; I never teach the same way--or same content--twice.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Master's in Education from Northwestern University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Stay tuned: over the next several months I will be adding complete unit packages to my collection of material. These units will be organized and structured for immediate classroom use; you'll be able to enact my units with little prep work. The material is really excellent! Check out my Speak unit to get a sense of what's coming.
