Biography


Dear Prospective Student,    

I'd be delighted for you to register for one of my English/Reading classes.  I usually teach English 57, 58, or 96, but I sometimes teach English 27, 137, and 106.  

Some students say I'm nice but nutty, kind but weird, or weirdly funny -- at least I think I'm funny; they're often laughing at me as opposed to with me. Some students say I'm a pain because I insist on classroom attendance, homework, and I want my students on-task and learning while they're with me. [After all what's the point if we're not active learners?] 

But most students agree that I'm fair,  and that there is more reward than grief in my teaching style. 

 What do I think?  I love teaching.  I take it seriously.  I can't guarantee you'll love me, but I can guarantee that every single lesson or assignment is based on solid, current educational research. 

And I can guarantee that, like it or not, you'll exit my class with having had opportunities for

  • improving  reading and writing skills that will help prepare you for the next level of English, 

  • knowing more about your student success and study skills,

  • knowing more about your learning style, multiple intelligences,

  • and knowing more about your ability to self-monitor your learning.

Hope to see you in class,  Mrs. Kashi
