I have been a teacher of English and English as a Second Language for about twenty-five years and have taught a full range of students, both domestically in a variety of public school systems and internationally in universities, military colleges and institutes. My vast body of varied experiences leads me to believe that I can teach anyone, anywhere.

For the past two years, I have been teaching Middle School English in Virginia, last year in Prince Edward Public Schools and this year with Lynchburg City Schools. Prior to those positions, the Middle East was my home for sixteen years, and with it came some of the most difficult teaching posts of my career. I persevered, however, and have no doubt that I made a positive difference in my students' lives.

Please contact me if you think I may be of service.
