I am excited to be starting my 11th year teaching English, and my 3rd year at MacArthur! I have taught English I, II, III, IV, Pre-AP English II, AP Literature and Composition, and AP Seminar over the years. I am thrilled that I will be helping the freshmen build their foundational skills this year.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from North Carolina State University; worked 12 years in management, recruiting, and as a Human Resources Manager before going back for my teaching certification and beginning my second career as an educator.
I love language, literature, and learning and have a strong belief that literacy is the key to success. I am continually amazed by the wealth of information at our fingertips; gone are the days of having to go to the library and physically go through the card catalog to find resources, now we can find almost everything on our phones or computers!
I enjoy reading; hanging out with my two teenage sons, my husband, and my dogs; road cycling; working on home improvement projects; and traveling.
