I believe in authentic and experiential learning; therefore, my students will use hands-on, real world experiences where applicable. With over twenty years of teaching experience at the junior high level, I have a unique style of teaching that uses positive reinforcement to encourage my students to learn. My expectations are high and I expect my students to succeed. Learning is the responsibility of the student, and it is my job to motivate and teach.
I recently graduated with a master's degree in media design and technology, so I am current on the latest teaching and learning theories. I also am able to use distance learning in order to prepare lessons over the Internet.
Having been and athletic director and coach for over twenty years, I know how to get results and motivate children to succeed. I have a great sense of humor and try to make learning fun.
