Having taught English for over 25 years, I have primarily focused on writing and close reading. I have also taught AP Language and Composition for the past 17 years. However, I have a broad range of teaching experience at the high school level: English 9, English 10, Enriched English 10, American Literature 1 & 2, Grammar & Usage, Humanities, British Literature, and English for the 21st Century. I have also taught university graduate-level C&I courses, ACT preparatory courses, and English classes at the community college level.
I strive to create a collaborative environment in the classroom, utilizing student partnerships and groups whenever I can.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher who also mentors others working towards National Board Certification.
