Words, words, words. Where would we be without them? They can make us laugh,cry, feel, think, reflect and push us to change the world. I have 40 years of experience teaching English Language Arts to adolescents-- and I am still smiling! What can I teach? If it deals with language, I can do it: grammar, literature, essay writing, creative writing, poetry,and word study to name a few. I have also directed plays for over 35 years for kids ranging from 3 to 18, and for adults in community theatre, so I can teach all aspects of Theater Arts. Because I am also an actress, I am energetic, enthusiastic and animated.
I believe, like Nelson Mandela has said, " Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." That is what teaching should be. AND, it should be fun!!
I have a BA in English and a MA in Humanities/Theater Arts, and a lifetime teaching certificate.
I am now retired. BUT, I can't stop teaching-- it's who I am and what I do. I have 40 years worth of ideas to share with eager learners of all ages. Come learn and play with me.
