About Me

Experience Summary

In the mid-to-late 1980s I led workshops and served as a chaperone for U.S. and international foreign exchange program students aged 16-19 under the auspices of American Field Services (AFS). Then in the late 1980s and mid-1990s, I taught the basic speech course (public speaking) at several urban/suburban college and university settings (DePaul University, Loyola University, College of DuPage, Harper College), in addition to storytelling classes at two non-traditional adult learning centers in Chicago. Currently, I am applying for substitute teaching at Winnetka and Evanston high schools, as well as for standardized test and reading/writing skills tutoring jobs before I become a State of Illinois certified English Language Arts teacher (middle/high school level) in June 2010.

Teaching Style

In my view, education is an ongoing process. I believe successful learning is mutual between teacher and student. In my view it is also imperative to foster a culture of respect in the classroom, to stay true to the subject matter, and to keep up with new developments in the field. But at the same time, I advocate being somewhat slow to embrace every new teaching trend since they may come and go. Finally, as a professional educator I endeavor to treat students/parents as clients and other teachers/administrators/ staff members as colleagues. True education as way of life never ends!
