I have had the privilege of teaching English at New Century Technology High School for seventeen years. Though I started my career as a tenth grade teacher, I have taught at every grade level. Currently I teach seniors in English 12 and AP Literature and Composition and am excited to be teaching Exploring Poetry for the first time. I earned a B.A. in English/Education in 1999, an M.A. in English Literature in 2009, and hold current certifications in both AP English Literature and AP English Language. I am an avid reader and sometimes writer of poetry. I have had two short articles and a few poems published, and someday I WILL write that novel. Until then, I will do my utmost to pass on my love of words to my students. I have three grown children and four grandchildren and tens of hundreds of kids whom I have taught and consider my own.

Some may think me a tad eccentric because of my extensive collection of holiday sweaters and my mild obsession with cats, but mostly I am just known as Mrs. SO. Probably the most important thing to know about me is that I care. I care that my "kids" learn. I care that they build confidence. I care that they succeed and grow as students and individuals, but mostly I care about them.
