About Me

Teaching the Next Generation

I’ve always found joy and a sense of accomplishment in learning. In fact, I have been going to school most of my life, and now, in my 34th year of teaching, I don't see that ending any time soon. I like to think that I am an example of how learning can be a lifelong, exciting experience. I earned a BA in English Literature from the University of Kentucky in 1989 and a teaching license from Morehead State University in 7-12 English Language Arts in 1990. I then completed both a MS in Technology from Morehead State University and National Board Certification in 2005. After yearly training in and teaching of AP English courses for 20 years, I switched gears again and began teaching College Credit Plus courses. This change required 18 additional graduate hours in English, which led to me finishing another master's degree in December 2023 in Rhetoric & Writing from University of Findlay.
In each course, I work hard to create an engaging, eye-opening, and challenging classroom environment - one that will help my students expand their horizons and push their boundaries, while at the same time teach them how to reinforce and articulate their emerging worldviews. I appreciate my students’ feedback and welcome an open dialogue in every class.
