Class Experience

I have been a high school English teacher and speech and debate coach for over 15 years. I love poetry, especially spoken word poetry, and have had tremendous success with teaching it in my classroom.  I also have an extensive background in theater. Spoken word poetry combines my love of literature and poetry with my love of drama and performance.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
