TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the course of my 20 years as a high school teacher, I have taught everything a high school can offer from general 9th-12th grade English to AP Literature as well as a plethora of elective classes, including the school newspaper, which I advised for 18 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style varies depending on student needs and the expectations of the class. There is no one way or right way to teach.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The only award I am truly proud of is Teacher of the Year (student choice) at my high school in 2008.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Yet to be added

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I earned a bachelor's degree in English Teaching with a minor in Journalism as well as a master's degree in Instructional Design and Technology--both from Utah State University. After my undergraduate experience, I wandered for a while as a technical writer and private pilot before I returned to my true home in a language arts classroom where I have taught for 20 years in Cache Valley, Utah. I am happily married and have four children.
