ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIALS
I graduated from Vanderbilt with a BA in English and Political Science. After practicing law for 6 years (JD Alabama), I left to pursue my true interest, teaching English. After earning two MA degrees, the first in English and the second in Secondary Education (English), I taught freshmen composition and American literature at UAB and Bevill State Community College for a year. In 1993, I returned to teach at my high school alma mater, MBHS. I am entering my 29th year of teaching.
In 2006 I received National Board Certification and then was recertified in 2016. Additionally, I have graded AP English Language and Composition exams for the College Board for 16 years. I also am the 2020 recipient of the Ann Pritchard Award for Excellence in Teaching.
I teach AP English Language and Composition and College Prep English 11. I also supervise the Writing Skills Center.
I am excited to teach your sons and daughters this year and hope to instill in them a love of English!
