Welcome to my class at Churchill High School! A San Antonio native, I have been teaching English since 1996, grades 9-12 and college composition and literature courses. I have taught in San Antonio public high schools, at an American international school in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and at the University of the Incarnate Word. I am currently an adjunct faculty member at San Antonio College - NEISD's link to the Dual Credit program. Wherever I am, I enjoy teaching literature and writing, but I especially love teaching at Churchill. Go Chargers!
My husband also teaches in NEISD, and both of our kids attend elementary school in NEISD.
If I'm not in my classroom, I'm probably in the library. I coach the UIL literary criticism and ready writing teams and coordinate Churchill's annual Shakespeare Festival held in April. Most of the time you'll find me in room 3207 getting ready for classes. I often tutor students before and after school unless there is a faculty or committee meeting.
I look forward to working with you this year, and I hope that no matter what your life and career goals may be, you gain an appreciation for and sense of empowerment with words and language and the impact they have in our world.
