Welcome to English! We use Springboard as our core text. In addition, we also read several novels during the year. Our focus is on college and career readiness.
Received my Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education from Ohio University in 1981
Masters Degree in Reading Education from The University of Dayton in 1991
All of my classroom experience has been with 6th -8th graders. I have taught everything from German in an immersion school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to math, social studies, computer applications, career education, English, and all types of reading classes. While most of my teaching experience has taken place in Ohio, I have been teaching at GJHS since 2004.
I enjoy sports of all sorts, music, literature, theater, and family. I enjoy supporting these programs at our school. I like to know my students and enjoy seeing them participate in events outside of my classroom.
I am looking forward to a productive and fun year at GJHS!
