I was born in Ohio, USA but moved to California when I was 14. My father was a teacher, and I was lucky to be able to watch some of his classes. It was then I decided to become a teacher. I was teaching in a university in Southern California when the opportunity came for me to teach in Japan.
I believe everyone is a teacher, so our classroom is a community of inquiry with each of us doing our best. I enjoy hard work with its great results. I am punctual, funny, flexible, and professional to both the students and the Skyeng staff.
One thing I try to impress on the students is that this classroom is a safe place to speak English and make mistakes. Also, along that line, if we try and make a mistake, we learn something - perhaps more easily. My classes are always fun – I make really silly drawings and silly gestures to teach grammar points and vocabulary. The students speak at least 70% of the class time, if possible.
I believe that everything students say in English is very important, and my goal is good communication, with corrections made after the conversation or work effort and without interrupting the flow of the conversation.
