About Keith

My specialty is at-risk middle school students. I have experience and the competence to help students who are struggling in Language Arts and Social Studies (Economics, Government, Geography, History).

I have worked for Money Magazine and Redbook Magazine as a copyeditor, and have taught at Travis Academy for the Talented and Gifted, as well as Spence Middle School and Sam Tasby Middle School in the DallasISD.

I delight in creating interesting projects to spark student interest and using hands-on teaching methods, the Internet, and "realia" whenever possible. For example, to learn about slavery, I had students create a booklet which included pages about cotton production (incorporating math), the two different economies of the North and South (economics), journal entries from a slave's point of view (writing), Triangular Trade (geography), and quilt-making (art). We also watched a wonderful film called "'Night John," and listened to and analyzed the roots of Gospel Music.
