Welcome parents and students!
My teaching journey began in my sophomore year of college when I was deciding to change my major and I was at a crossroads. My passion for reading and writing eventually led me to find my calling in Education. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a focus in English Language Arts. Teaching gives me the opportunity to reach the future generations and give the necessary literacy skills to be successful in life, while hopefully inspiring a love of literature.
In my classroom, I believe in giving students agency over their own learning. I want to challenge students to take control over their education so that they may be acitvley invloved while also aligning their education to their passions. Due to that, I often give students opportunities to have their own choice in the literature they read as well as the assignments they complete. Along with teaching, I also spend my professional time coaching volleyball and soccer for WHS. If I am not teaching or coaching, you can find me at home with my two adorable golden retrievers and my fiance.
I look forward to an exciting 2019-2020 school year!
