I have taught high school English in a large district in NC since 2006.
I like to keep things simple, streamlined, and super fun. I don't think English should be boring. Students need to be engaged in what they are doing!
2006 School-wide and district-wide Rookie Teacher of the Year 2012 Teacher Loyalty Award 4.0 GPA in Master's Program
I have a Bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Master's Degree in School Administration from Queens University of Charlotte.
I find my greatest happiness when I create the teacher/mom life balance.
