Teaching at various schools has afforded me the opportunity to teach a wide curriculum in both English and ESL over the course of my career. Thus, I have created quite a few power point lessons for class usage.  Today, we use less ppt in the classroom and more video and group work; nonetheless, these basic review lessons can provide a helpful solid foundation for many topics. Eventually, I hope to turn the lessons into updated videos, but for now, you can learn from what I have if you like! You can find these lessons from the drop down menu on the home page.

I also use the below Ted Ed videos for a variety of subjects. The website is a fantastic resource that is worth spending time going through.

Here of some of the Ted Ed videos I show in class.
