About Me

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This is my first year with the Coyotes at West Creek High School, having moved from its feeder school, West Creek Middle School. I am a graduate of Knoxville's University of Tennessee with a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in English Education. My focuses included Creative Writing and Technical Communications, so I understand the value of strong communication skills regardless of the writing task. In my experience, I have found that there are five fundamental English skills: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Thinking. I am looking for a successful year full of growth in all of these areas for all of my students! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns about class. Let's have a great year together!
