I graduated in 2008 from West Virginia Wesleyan College. I have a Bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education with a double major in English Literature. Since graduation, I have worked for various nonprofit organizations and now am a full time English teacher. I also have my Masters in Reading (M.Ed) and am certified as a Reading Specialist.
I am passionate about the subject of English and helping people develop and master their skills in reading and writing along with honing test taking skills. I want to make learning fun and exciting for everyone. If someone is struggling with a subject, it is easy for them to be discouraged. My goal is to take whatever subject or test that they are working on and break down the information so that they can obtain what they need in order to be successful. I want to be an encouraging motivator to everyone I work with to give them the skills and confidence they need to achieve their goals. I am a firm believer that education and working towards your goals go hand in hand. I want the people with whom I work to be encouraged and to know their hard work will pay off.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, working out, and listening to true crime podcasts.
My interests are reading mystery novels, working out, and enjoying all different genres of movies.
