In teaching high school, I find there is a deeper opportunity to both connect with and teach students. So many of my college students arrive in the classroom struggling to express themselves in their writing, to correctly employ grammar, and to both comprehend and critically analyze what they are reading.

I’m quite comfortable teaching core English classes, as well as English electives ranging from journalism to creative writing to digital storytelling. The combination of teaching college and high school the past several years has given me considerable insight regarding the expectations for high school students at the post-secondary level.
