I teach Advanced English 10, American Literature 1, American Literature 2, and Creative Writing at Lawrence Free State High School. After school, I sponsor Animation Club (Cartoon Club and Anime Club). I actually grew up in Lawrence, having attended the schools back when the only things surrounding Free State were empty lots and cornfields. While attending the University of Kansas, I spent a summer studying abroad in England and Scotland. I received my degree in Secondary English Education from the KU School of Education. I completed my Master's degree with a focus in teaching Reading. I love to travel; I have visited 49/50 states and four countries. Besides traveling, I enjoy reading, writing, listening to podcasts, playing with my cats, and cooking with my spouse.
You can find information for how to join my Google Classroom and WebEx on the class syllabus.
