TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have five years of experience in public high school teaching, including AP Literature. I've done grading/scoring for both the College Board (AP Literature test) and Pearson (SAT essay). I have over ten years of college composition instruction with a primary focus on the freshman English sequences. I've been homeschooling my own kids for the past five years. I adore the Charlotte Mason approach and would follow her to the ends of the earth. In 2015, I published my first book, Mission Ready Marriage (available on Amazon).

MY TEACHING STYLE

My greatest strength is encouraging all students to make life-connections with reading and writing assignments. I aim to have my students think critically and carefully while making connections to themselves and the outside world. Content is important, but building up confident thinkers is my heart's passion.
