I worked in schools either as a middle school teacher, high school teacher, or administrator for over thirty years. Most of my experience has been in high school English classrooms. I have taught everything from ninth-grade literature to students with major reading problems all the way to AP English Language and Composition teacher. Although I love teaching, I retired at the end of the 2009-2010 school year when over 500 teachers in my district lost their jobs because of the bad economy. I'm praying that the economy will improve and I will be able to find another teaching job in high school or college in the future.
I like to have fun in the classroom, and I want my students to enjoy reading and writing. I also realize however that we must have high standards for ourselves and high standards for our students. I believe in providing extensive opportunities for students to read, write, and share their work with their peers. I am also traditional in that I believe students must read works carefully and that their writing must exhibit correct use of standard written English.
