I am in my 31st year of teaching (how can that be???) and fully enjoy teaching your students literature, writing, and speaking skills! I received my Bachelors Degree at Washington University in St. Louis and my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at UW-M. I was also awarded National Board Certification in 2004 and achieved re-certification in 2014. Because of this certification, I have a "Master Teacher" License.
All of my training has been focused on growing as a learner, myself, and on learning how to teach high school students so that they leave my classroom better prepared for whatever their calling will be. Strong training in English/Language Arts prepares every student to read, write, and speak in his and her future career field. In English, we also explore the big issues of history and humanity.
This year I am teaching English 11, AP Literature and Composition, and Mystery and Suspense. I am co-coaching the Academic Decathlon team who is studying the history, music, art, literature, etc. of India this year. :)
