Hello! I'm happy to be in my second year teaching English at Burton.  Teaching is a second career for me; I taught for seven years in Jenkins, KY, after many years as a stay-home mom of two boys who are now JIB graduates and students at ETSU.  I love teaching and learning along with my students.  I am always looking for fun ideas to innovate my teaching and I hope to use this space to share some of the projects that we are working on.

I recently earned my master's degree in English from Morehead State University.  My B.A. is from Birmingham-Southern College (Alabama, where I grew up), and I took teacher certification classes at UVA-Wise.

Writing is one of my passions, and I am involved in professional development and research with the Appalachian Writing Project, an affiliate of the National Writing Project based at UVA-Wise.  We are currently piloting a new program, C3WP (College, Career, and Community Writers Program) devoted to teaching students to use source evidence in writing arguments, and my students enjoy debating these real-world topics.
