Welcome to my Web Page.  This year, I am teaching Honors English I and Honors English IV.  I have been teaching English at James Island Charter High School for 12 years; in all, this is my 17th year in the classroom.  I am excited about the new year.  I look forward to meeting you and working with your child this year.

From Clemson University, I received a BA in English and History and an MA in English.  In addition to my role at James Island Charter High School, I teach an evening freshman writing course at the College of Charleston, as well as an online composition course at Charleston Southern University.  My college-level teaching allows me additional insight as a high school teacher.
Aside from teaching English, I have many interests.  I frequently write outdoor articles and creative nonfiction stories.  My love of writing is intertwined with my love of teaching, and I am confident this experience affords me an empathy for my writing students.  I enjoy camping, hunting, boating, fishing, camping, raising chickens, kayaking, and spending time with my family.
