One of the most wonderful aspects of teaching is that no matter how often I teach or read something, students will still find something new in it to teach me. Teaching is finding out what really matters to the student and approaching the subject matter through that window. My teaching degree is from Harvard and it was there I learned the significance of those connections. My actual English degree stems from Boston College. I have taught English in every grade from sixth to twelfth, finding the best parts of each of those grades. My twelfth grade classes were grounded in SAT Preparation and College Application Essay writing. My tenth grade classes had to be grounded in state testing preparation, where I never once have had a student fail and always had at least two students achieve perfect scores.
