I have studied English and American Literature and taught these subjects briefly in high school in the Chicago Public Schools. My heyday was teaching English Literature at Whitney Young High School back in 1991, which I especially enjoyed teaching the romantics in poetry and the written essay. I taught English composition at Chicago State University back in 1982-6, as a composition lecturer and graded massive examination for students who needed to qualify for the graduation English examination. This increased my understanding of grammar, and following the format of your basic five paragraph composition essay, which was the formula for the graduation examination. My most recent teaching experience has been teaching a poetry workship to seniors at the Chicago Senior Center on the southeastern part of the city.
