I am from Bedford, Indiana. I graduated with distinction from Indiana University with a Bachelor's degree in English and a Secondary Education teaching certificate, specializing in Language Arts. I have taught in a variety of high school settings, including having the wonderful opportunity to teach abroad in New Zealand through the Indiana University Cultural Immersions Program. Also, I have published educational policy briefs with the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy in Bloomington, Indiana. Last year I taught English 10 and 10 Honors at AHS. This year I will again be teaching English 10 and 10 Honors. Go Orioles!
In the classroom, I intend to uphold high expectations for students, promote critical thinking, and work hard to do whatever I can to help students succeed. (Hopefully we will have a laugh occasionally as well!) Parents, please do not hesitate to call and chat with me about your students' progress. Students, we are in this together. Let's work together to make this a fantastic year!
