I am a former English Teacher and I really enjoyed my time working with students. Although my career path has turned towards the Law, I still miss sharing my love of English literature and writing with others.
As a former educator, I am deeply familiar with the many issues that students, Teachers, and schools face. When I student-taught at Edison High School, I learned the importance of not only appreciating each student's learning style, but the less salient aspects of his or her life which affected learning: their extracurricular activities, workload in other classes, and emotional, social, or psychological struggles. I held firm to my standards, as to what kind of commitment I expected from my students, and opened myself up as a resource to help them to fulfill those standards.
My specialty has always been Reading, Writing, and Literature. Communication and analysis are the very core of what English classes are meant to teach. By using this as the framework for my lessons, I push my students towards mastery of the subject, rather than rote memorization of grammatical rules and literary devices.
