    Welcome to Western High! I am thrilled to be teaching Literacy Academy, English 1, and English 1 Honors this school year. In addition to these courses, past experience includes teaching AP English Language and Composition, as well as 8th grade Language Arts at Woodlawn and Western Middle Schools. I grew up in the Western Alamance area and attended A.O., Western Middle and Western High. Once a Warrior, always a Warrior! I earned my degree in Journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill (Go HEELS!!) and prepared for my licensure in English/Language Arts and Social Studies at Greensboro College.


    This promises to be an interesting school year, to say the least, but I am positive that we will enjoy learning together! As we begin our courses with virtual learning, I look forward to greeting you online on Zoom, and then meeting face-to-face as we (hopefully!) move to In-Classroom learning later this semester. Please watch this page and the WAHS homepage for additional information. Students should also check SCHOOL GMAIL frequently. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
