20 Years experience in K-12 public schools and higher education.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I am the unconventional teacher – I love to bring innovation and creativity into the classroom. I am constantly seeking new ways to help students master the material, and I create engaging, exciting lessons for my students. I believe that the possibilities for unconventional lessons and activities are endless, so there is always new material with which to engage learners.
