    Welcome to my Teacher Webpage. I am excited to be teaching English II this school year! My past experience includes teaching Literacy Academy, English I, and AP English Language and Composition, as well as 8th grade Language Arts at Woodlawn and Western Middle Schools. I grew up in Alamance County and graduated from WAHS. 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. As we begin our 2021-22 courses with a return to in-person learning, I look forward to meeting each of you face-to-face!


    English II Course Description:

    English II is a World Literature course. Students will continue to build upon reading, writing, language, speaking & listening skills learned in English I. Materials will include text selections by classical and contemporary authors from around the world. The North Carolina English II End-of-Course test will be administered at the conclusion of this course and counts as 20% of the final course grade.
