                I am originally from Richmond, Virginia.  I earned my bachelor's degree in English and my master's degree in teaching from Virginia Commonwealth University; I began teaching in 2006.  I am also certified by the AP College Board to teach AP Language and Composition (2008) and AP Literature and Composition (2018). This is my tenth year teaching high-school English, but I last worked as a stay-home mother with my rising Kindergartener. I have taught English 9, English 10, English 11, AP Language and Composition, and, now, English IV and AP Literature and Composition. I have also taught several electives in the past: creative writing and Speech 1 and Debate. The majority of my career was spent in Patrick County, Virginia, where I coached the speech team for four years. I enjoy teaching writing, reading analysis, reading comprehension, presentation techniques, and vocabulary. I hope to pass my enthusiasm for these skills on to your senior!
