I am beginning my 12th year in the classroom and joined the Highland Park High School English Department in the fall of 2015! At Highland Park I have taught English II Standard, English II PreAP, and English III AP-TaG. I believe every student can develop an appreciation for literature, especially when the student personally connects to the material. My goal is to foster those connections and build literary confidence, so students feel they can approach any text. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a BS in Journalism and completed 27 hours of Masters Level Courses in English from St. Mary's University. My previous teaching experience was in Plano ISD at Jasper High School and at Central Catholic High School in San Antonio, Texas.
