I teach Advanced English 10, American Literature 1, Creative Writing, Appreciation of Literature, and British Literature at Lawrence Free State High School. After school, I sponsor 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, and playing fetch with my cat.
I manage my class websites through Google classroom. Students receive codes to join these websites on their syllabi. This keeps their online work safe and secure.
