A little about me...
I graduated from NC State with a bachelors degree in English Literature: Writing and Editing, and spent 20+ years as a marketing communications and PR executive in a variety of leadership roles. I have 3 children - a daughter and CHS graduate who is a recent graduate from NC State University, a son who is now a sophomore at NC State, and a younger son who is a junior at CHS!
My approach to teaching is to create a fun, interactive environment while using my experience in the corporate world to reinforce the importance of delivering high-quality work, setting and achieving goals, and adhering to deadlines. Through the rigorous study of all aspects of language and literature, students learn, refine and master critical skills related to comprehension, writing, persuasion techniques, and effective public speaking that will serve them well throughout their post-high school experiences.
Students - I am here to help you, and you are ALWAYS welcome to email, call or schedule a time to meet with me one-on-one, so please reach out anytime!
Parents, please feel free to email or call as well, and I am happy to meet with you for a scheduled conference at your convenience.
I am looking forward to a great semester!
Comets - ALL IN!
