Hi, Students and Parents!

I hope students will learn all they possibly can this year in our English I class.

I like freshman English because we cover such a wide range of literature, and the younger the students, the more

creative and curious they seem to be.

This is my first year as a full-time teacher at North Forsyth High School, but I am familiar with the school

because I was lucky to substitute here for two years, thinking I had retired from teaching.

Just when I wanted to return, however, a position appeared and I was happy to take it.

I have tuaght English in Washington State, Tennessee, and North Carolina - NC is my favorite. I have a bachelor's degree

in English from Maryville College (1984) and a master's in English/Teaching English from The University of Central Florida (Orlando, 1986)

and The University of Tennessee (Knoxville, 1994).

Jeff and I have four children who range in age from 9 to 28. Teaching and parenting seem to be mutually beneficial. 

Here's to a good semester for all of us!
