Degrees and Certifications:
I became a teacher to share my knowledge of literature and rhetoric with my students. I believe in lifelong learning and that wide reading helps a person grow both personally and intellectually. I am committed to helping my students increase their skills in English Language Arts and have a Master's degree in the field. I am a National Board certified teacher. I believe reading and writing are foundational to the world of work. I believe that students in my classes must be given daily challenges to strengthen their ability to think clearly and articulate ideas.
