I am a friendly, eclectic English and Graphic Design teacher with an extensive technology-in-publications experience. I have 13 years of English teaching experience, 8 years of Computer Art Technology experience, and serve as both Yearbook and Newspaper advisor during that time. I created a curriculum to prepare students for the NOCTI II certificate and Adobe Certified Associate program, and also created and currently run my district's Print Shop, staffed by student-interns. I have also served as JEA Representative for the National Journalism Convention and served as department chair of the College & Career Readiness Curriculum Action Team.
My current licenses are
Lifetime English (9-12) and Lifetime Journalism (9-12) and 10-year Business (9-12).
