I have been teaching since 2009, and since that time I have had the opportunity to teach English/Language Arts to grades 8-12. In addition, I have also taught 8th grade Social Studies. I currently teach high school English to sophomores and seniors, in addition to Speech.
I work to apply college and career readiness standards into all lessons and units of study. Preparing teenagers for life beyond high school, and arming them with real world skills and abilities, is of the utmost importance to me.
