The coolest teacher that keeps you on the edge of your seat for all of literature has a life lesson you need.

Methodology

My teaching approach is to provide a safe place where each student works at their own pace while making learning gains. Students are given the opportunity to make real life connections to the lessons helping to prepare them for a career in the international world of work. Thinking outside the box is encouraged, creativity is part of our classroom and reinforcement for character education, integrity, and self care.

Background

I am a published author, TEDx speaker, English teacher, Dean of Guidance, and lPC on line and have taught both inner city and rural in Ohio and Florida for over 25 years. I have spoke to crowds as little as one and as large as a thousand, each being as important as the other. I have two masters and three certifications in the state of Ohio.
