TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my third year of teaching at Bob Jones High School in Madison, AL. I have taught PreAP English 9 and Freshman Composition for those three years, as well as some English 11 Honors and English 12.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am always looking for ways to both challenge and engage my students simultaneously. This is not easily done, but I am always willing to try new things, and thankfully I work in an environment where innovation is encouraged!
