    Position:
    English Teacher
     
     
    Background:
    MA in English/Teaching Writing from Rutgers Camden
     
    BA in English/Secondary Education from Rowan (formerly Glassboro State)
    Teaching Philosophy:
     
     
    I realized in high school when I was teaching my friends Algebra that I was good at explaining things.  It made sense to pursue English (Literature and Writing) since that was what I liked and what I was good at.  My goal is for students to leave my class with a sense of having studied literature.  I enjoy the time spent in the classroom, reading, talking, asking and answering questions, finding out why something is difficult, or why it came so easily for another.  I want students to feel like they've spent quality time in the English classroom and feel prepared to communicate effectively with others.
     
     
    Additional Info:
    This will be my eleventh year at BCIT-Medford. Before I joined this community, I spent a year teaching English to Korean students in South Korea, and finishing up my graduate degree at Rutgers. After college at Rowan, I spent seven years in educational testing, reading and scoring essays and open-ended responses for many different standardized tests. I taught Composition I and II, and Introduction to Literature for Camden County College as well as HSPA/SAT preparation courses for public and private institutions.
