Certified English gr. 5-12/former College Instructor Looking to Spread the Joy of English

Methodology

I hold a BS in English and MA in English: Business and Technical Communications. Having "suffered" through 3 years of engineering, and tutored those difficult subjects in college, I decided to change majors to English. I have worked as a professional writer/editor as well, so I know how to relate writing assignments to the "real" world to show students how writing really does have an impact on their lives.

Background

I have been an educator for over twenty years, so I have had more students than I can count! It isn't unusual for me to meet a former student in the store and be greeted by a hug. I meet my students where they are at in the classroom and then tailor their lessons for where they need to be at the end of the lesson, unit, or semester. When the lessons need to be adjusted to achieve the desired outcomes, they are adjusted; and of course I make necessary adjustments in my delivery methods/teaching style as I need to make them.
