TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught high school English for 10 years. I primarily teach American literature and composition, 10th grade literature and composition, and public speaking.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a high school teacher, my primary goal is to prepare my students for higher education beyond high school. Even if a student has decided not to pursue any type of degree in the future, my belief is that they will benefit as a growing lifetime learner from having been through the rigor of a course with such a goal.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated from my bachelors and masters programs with honors.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I started my bachelors in English education at Purdue University in Indiana. I completed that degree at Kennesaw University in Georgia. I have a masters degree - also from Kennesaw University - in adolescent education, emphasis in English.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am dedicated to the success of my students and would love to share my resources with you!
