I have been teaching for 20 years; however, it seems as if each new class and each new student teaches me something valuable, so sometimes I feel as if I am still a new teacher. Hopefully, I preserve my new-teacher enthusiasm while tempering my passion for education with the wisdom of experience.
I have been teaching at Mountain View, the campus of champions, for ten years, and I love it! We have the most dedicated staff and students!
I earned my B.F.A. in Theatre Education with a minor in English and my M.A. in English Literature from Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, IL.
During the summer, I have the opportunity to be an AP reader for the College Board, and I always enjoy the wonderful experience. Every year about 1500 of the best English teachers and professors score about 1.7 million AP essays in one week! It is astonishing to be with so many brilliant educators.
I look forward to teaching your student and cultivating a relationship with you. Together we can teach them well and help create productive life-long learners.
