Principled, Conceptual, Intentional
I've been teaching for twenty years now, both in public and parochial schools. A native of Phoenix, Arizona, I attended college in Seward, Nebraska and have taught in both Los Angeles, California and Dunlap, Iowa.
Visual & Verbal
With a double major in History and Art, I once dreamed of being an editorial cartoonist for a major newspaper, but found I'd rather build up young minds than take pot-shots at public figures. You might say that my original interests have fed my teaching; both analytic and expressive, both conceptual and practical.
In social studies, I try to help students to make connections with analogies and mental pictures. While in art I try to help students discover how they can communicate their ideas effectively and with impact.
