I am a certified English teacher for grades 6-12 with a Masters degree in English Education from Vanderbilt University and a Bachelors degree in English Literature and Writing from Sewanee the University of the South. I have taught in both Tennessee and Georgia public middle schools to diverse student bodies. My teaching experience is mostly with middle school aged students, where I focus on developing reading comprehension skills and helping students become better writers in preparation for high school courses. I am passionate about analyzing literature with students so they become more observant members of society and critical thinkers. I believe that students can overcome obstacles in their lives through becoming good communicators in reading and writing. When I am not teaching, I am an avid fan of reading fiction and poetry, testing out new recipes, and spending time outdoors.
