I have taught for five years at a North Carolina High school. I have taught grades ninth, tenth, and eleventh with a mixture of standard and honors classes.
Students need to believe that what they are being taught has practical value; consequently, I am constantly trying to find ways to connect what I teach to their everyday lives and their future!
I've never received an award, unless you count student smiles when they "get" whatever I'm teaching!
I received a Bachelor's Degree in English Education from North Carolina at Pembroke.
I am married with a beautiful daughter, Brooke who is a rambunctious five year old that loves climbing and jumping--the higher the jump, the better! We have one on the way! I treasure family time and I believe that shopping is truly good therapy!
