Hi! My name is Reba, and I have 30 years' teaching experience in Middle and High School English, ESL, and Theatre. I taught in international private schools for 20 years, and have traveled all over the world. For the past nine years, I taught high school Theatre and English in the Austin, Texas school district.
I consider some of my more important strengths to include knowledge of subject matter, meeting the individual needs/requirements of my students, the ability to make the material fresh, fun, and stimulating, as well as challenging. Further, I teach and model critical thinking via reading, writing, speaking, listening.
I am fascinated by the written word, and love to help motivate my students to approach reading and writing as a means to exploring, communicating, and thinking.
Before I even begin to delve into the subject matter, I get to know the student on his/her level, so that I can model my lesson plans to suit the individual student, and so that he/she is empowered to become part of the process of learning.
