Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts English Grades 6-12
I teach 8th grade English, Language Arts. I'm originally from Indiana, and I graduated from Manchester University with a BA in English and my certification for Secondary Education. I taught two years of 10th and 11th grade English at Wawasee High School in Syracuse, Indiana, and one year of grades 6-12 ELA at Paddock View Alternative School in Marion, Indiana, before moving to Florida. I have taught at Port Charlotte Middle School since 2017, and have since earned my ESOL and Reading endorsements.
I am dedicated to my students. I understand that this year will come with challenges that we have not encountered before as well as normal ones, so my door is always open. I respond quicker to emails or Remind messages, but you may also call me. If we are to go virtual, I will also add a Google Voice number that you can use to contact me.
I am so excited about this year, and I hope you are, too.
