TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught a variety of classes within the English department as needed by my school based on fluctuations in enrollment and class offerings. Among the classes I have taught, I have taught both honors and standard English I, English II, English III, and English IV. Additionally, I have taught Freshman Orientation, Journalism, Advanced Creative Writing, ACT Prep, and an elective of World Mythology. I have been teaching at the same school since my student teaching, having been hired immediately following graduation.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have high expectations in all things but look to teach with love and enthusiasm. I do what I can to make the work not feel like work. I want my class to be enjoyable but rigorous as I prepare student for their futures in college or careers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I obtained my bachelor's degree in English and Allied Language Arts from Western Kentucky University in 2008 after graduating Magna Cum Laude. I obtained my Master's degree in Literature from Western Kentucky University in 2012. I began working on my doctorate in Curriculum Design and Instruction in the fall of 2019.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have four children of my own, and I married young. Consequently, I did not begin college or enter the teaching field until after my children were in school. Upon entering college, I determined to do what I could to foster a love (or at the very least a decent respect) for literature in my future students, and have maintained that goal to this day. I attempt to teach relevance of the classics through relating it to students lives, while also demonstrating that their own self-importance should not be the sole consideration in their value of literary merit or study.
