I have spent the last 15 years teaching high school English.I have taught 9th-12th grade and have enjoyed each one for their unique attributes.
“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” -Plato
I was nominated for teacher of the year for Johnston County schools, have been teacher of the month twice, and was voted by my colleagues as "Most likely to give a student a second chance."
I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in English with an emphasis in linguistics. My Master's Thesis was on how to best teach language from a distance.
I have one grown son who is in college now, and I am originally from San Francisco.
