I have been teaching high school English for twenty years. Also, I have been teaching as an adjunct at the community college level for ten years,
I like to show my students why literature is important and how it can be beneficial to their daily lives and how it can help them grow intellectually. I know many of them won't love a Shakespeare play or a Keats poem as much as I do, or that they will "get it" the first time I teach it, but if I can open their minds to the possibility, then I believe I have done my job.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Lambuth U. in Jackson, TN, and a Master's degree in English from the University of Memphis.
I have been married for twenty-three years and have two wonderful daughters. I enjoy travel, cooking, reading, and the occasional run. I am an avid sports fan, but baseball is my favorite sport. And I love to surprise people when they find out I'm a huge NASCAR fan! I usually attend one to two races per year.
