I teach English 9 in a virtual classrom setting. In the past, I also taught VC English 12. I am very familiar with numerous online instruction programs including Blackboard, Collaborate, AT&T Connect, and Elluminate. Using these programs, I engage students with lively debates and discussions. I use a variety of multimedia as well as PowerPoint, Excel, Microsoft Word, Web 2.0 tools and websites. I've created my own websites to host videos for classes. I can edit audio and video clips to make them appropriate and suitable for the classes I teach. I am also (currently) teaching 3 courses for my school's gifted program. I created the PowerPoints for these classes and I teach the material in Elluminate. Additionally, I tutor for Title 1. I help students who are having difficulty with course material. I have written curriculum for 3 different online asynchronous courses.
I enjoy participating in SCA events and activities. The SCA stands for Society for Creative Anachronism. I research and sew historically accurate costuming in various periods in history, cook authentic foods over a fire, brew beer and vint wine and mead from authentic sources.
