Honors American Literature
Hi there! I will be working with our 11th grade American Literature scholars. It is my second year with New West Charter. I'm looking forward to nurturing and facilitating literary analysis, stimulating discussions, and multi-faceted writing activities! My goal is to empower students with critical thinking tools and imbue them with the power of the pen.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. - Nelson Mandela
I'm grateful to be able to lead students along their life journeys. My educational journey includes a Bachelor's degree in English, focusing on Linguistics and Creative Writing. I completed my Master's degree in Education with an emphasis on Educational Technology. I have been working in Education for over 14 years.
I enjoy sharing my passion for reading and writing with students. Supporting students' ability to recognize various text features, styles, and intentions is fun. Guiding students through their writing energizes the creative writing nerd within me. In addition to my educational background, I have written and edited for many years. All my experience culminates in my capacity to ensure that students achieve grade-appropriate literacy.
I spend most of my leisure time cooking, reading, spending time with my family. My hobbies include learning chess, attending workshops, traveling, and learning more about various subjects. (I love history!) We are embarking on the most fantastic journey yet.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of our students excel in the literary arts.
