ABOUT THE TEACHER:
This is my first full year teaching 10th grade reading and english at BHS.
I come from Illinois, where I attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale for my undergraduate degree in education. I next spent a year abroad in Scotland obtaining a Masters degree in modern history from the University of Aberdeen, a school that was founded in 1495!
Last fall I recieved my Florida certification for secondary language arts.
Students in my class will quickly notice my love of literature, history, and my border collie/catahoula mix, Daisy Mae.
This is not a class you take just to pass the FCAT. This is a class you take to teach you skills you will use in every subject area and every day of your life in the real world.
I am looking very forward to working with everyone!
