”About Me” I have been a librarian and English teacher for almost two decades, working in every environment from rural mountain schools to economically challenged inner cities to richly diverse metropolises. Many years ago, I was hired to create the English curriculum for students being homeschooled. This experience brings me the greatest joy and inspires my love of education on a daily basis. It's a joy to create lessons based on what the students enjoy learning, at the pace that works for them, while challenging them to meet rigorous expectations set by myself and their parents. Some units I've taught include Wonder and the effect of bullying; Cinder and the story structure of fairy tales and how that structure applies to all stories; Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and historical research used in fiction writing; Life As We Knew It and dystopia in literature combined with researching real life dystopias and how to survive, and Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief and Greek Mythology. With my individual, student-driven method, my students will learn and develop, and then apply everything learned in my English Language Arts and Creative Writing classes in other areas of study and work.
