Time to Teach

Time to Teach is a classroom management system designed to eliminate low-level discipline problems and to raise dramatically achievement scores on state-wide tests.  

I am a veteran English teacher, having taught in the Broward County Public Schools for a total of 45 years.  Those years included sixth, seventh, and eighth grade gifted and regular English classes; ninth through twelfth grade regular, honors, gifted classes, and Advanced Placement English Language and Composition.    I have also taught Basic, ENC 110l, ENC1102, and two different courses in American literature at Broward College.  Currently, I am an instructor at Keiser University, Ft. Lauderdale, FL campus: Basic English, Composition 1, and Composition 2.

A published author, I have three books and a myriad of publishing credits in children's magazines, local periodicals, etc.

My passion is teaching; my philosophy, simple:

I am

Language and Literature

And the spark that ignites

The love of learning.

HABITS OF MIND STUDENTS NEED TO SUCCEED 

The student has integrity:

  • 1. Refuses all forms of cheating, i.e. cheating on tests, copying homework, plagiarizing, etc.
  • 2. Documents all sources using an approved style (i.e. MLA, APA, etc.).
  • 3. Refuses to allow anyone to copy from or to plagiarize from his/her own work, yet shows willingness to help other students who need it.

  • 5. Values integrity in his/her own person and in that of others.
  • 6. Realizes that students and teachers are on a common quest for knowledge and shows respect to the leader of the journey.

The student has a work ethic:

  • 2. Attends class, recognizing that while work might be made up, the instruction cannot.
  • 3. Reads and completes all assignments and comes to class prepared to contribute substantively to the learning community.

The student has intellectual curiosity:

  • 2. Seeks the challenge of new learning and demonstrates the willingness to authenticate it through the lens of his/her own experience.
  • 3. Demonstrates motivation and initiative, taking responsibility for his/her own learning.
