As a parent of teenagers in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12, I understand the importance of preparing students at the high school level for the goals that lie beyond. With Seniors, this means ensuring they have the skills and readiness to succeed beyond the doors of Grissom High School, whether plans entail attending college, trade school, or joining the work force full time. As an English teacher, I am focused on helping students improve their communication and critical thinking skills, and as a parent who understands the uniqueness of each student, I enjoy getting to know each individual personality that enters my classroom.
My own interests include movies and theater, music - especially percussion, bicycling, swimming and traveling. In addition to my husband and children, my family includes two exceptionally talented dogs and two adorable parakeets.
