Hello My Name Is...
I have been an English teacher for 29 years in both public and private schools. This year is my 20th year at South Park High School. I am an alumni of Grove City College, where I earned a bachelor's degree in communications and literature. Once I began my teaching career, I completed a master's degree at Western Maryland College, which is now known as McDaniel College.
This year I am teaching English 11 Honors, English 11 College Prep, AP English Language and Composition, and Contemporary Novels. I have taught most levels at all grade levels through the years, but I am particularly fond of American literature, which is the focal point for 11th grade English. As times have changed, I have worked hard to keep up with methods of teaching that will best benefit students. I am looking forward to this year's Chromebook initiative. The focus in my class is skill based - I strive to help every student develop the skills needed to be successful in college or in careers.
