I've taught for over three decades, starting out as an elementary school teacher, moving onto middle school, and then becoming an English teacher. I'm also a drama director and have produced a variety of plays including "Hamlet," "Nicholas Nickleby," "Wit," "Doubt" and "Angels in America."
"Though this be madness, yet there is method in't." This line, spoken by Polonius in "Hamlet," captures my philosophy and style of teaching- provocative, engaging, silly, but always thoughtful.
I'm married, and have two sons, both of whom were students in my class and actors in my plays. I enjoy reading, writing, biking, working part-time at a bookstore, and can often be found in local coffee shops reading, writing and grading.
