Class experience

Student should send instructor before class any reading materials related to event they wish to go over.
I am a semi-retired Professor and High School teacher.  I am also as of last year, a retired attorney in New York State.  I taught Speech and Debate for many years (over 17) at the Middle and High School Level.  I was an award-winning coach at the State level.  My students also competed at the National Level.  Several received scholarships to college based on their speech and debate accomplishments.  I have also taught Advanced Placement US Government, Advanced Placement Comparative Government and traditional High School Government, US History and Economics for over ten years.  I know it is important to introduce a fact based, non-biased lesson to students that will foster discussions with their family.  For twenty years I have had the opportunity to work with students from Pre-K through Graduate School in both a traditional learning atmosphere and those classes that deviate from neurotypical teaching.  I held my teaching certification in World History/US History/Government and Economics for Middle and High School.   My teaching philosophy is that all students are individuals and unique learners that must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and where mistakes are considered education victories.
     While incorporating the eight learning styles into each class, I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Technology must be incorporated into the school day.

Homework Offered
This will vary based on event. I do like to meet with students at least twice when possible to see how they are going to articulate their research.
Assessments Offered
I am always happy to discuss progress with parents through email or the last five minutes of class.
Grades Offered
Students should come prepared with their materials and questions.
