Learning in the 21st Century

About June 4, 2012

As a teacher, I love what I do and strive to be better everyday.  There have been many experiences, both professional and personal, that have formed my philosophy on education and motivated me to be a teacher.

I received a Bachelor or Arts in Education with a focus on English and History from Western Michigan University. While at WMU, I was a proud member of the WMU Bronco Marching Band Color Guard, an active member of Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Fraternity and a enthusiastic instructor of English 1000: Intro to Basic Writing.

After graduation I accepted a job at Climax-Scotts Community Alternative School in Climax, MI where I taught literature, basic reading and writing to alternative high school students. In 2007 I moved from Michigan to Maryland to teach 9th grade English at Doris M. Johnson High School in Baltimore City.  I taught in Baltimore for two years before accepting my current position in Howard County, MD.

Professionally, I currently serve as the Class of 2013 Adviser, and am a member of the SGA action team.  I am also a 0th and  11th grade English teacher and a proctor for the SAT examinations.  I am currently earning a Masters Degree in School Library Media from McDaniel College.  I expect to graduate in the Spring of 2013.

In my free time I enjoy quilting, baking, reading and spending time with my husband, and my dog Indiana.

Our “child” Indiana…He is cute and he knows it.
