I graduated from Collegedale Academy in 2004 and attended Southern Adventist University for a year before student teaching in Pohnpei, Micronesia for a year. When I came back I finished my undergraduate at UTC and received a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature and a minor in Education. 


I have taught a variety of grade levels within the English department during my time at Walker Valley including 9-12th grade English and AP Literature and Composition.


I absolutely love teaching at the greatest high school around, Walker Valley! (Go Mustangs). I really enjoy specifically that I get to teach 9th graders. English can be so much fun and I like to approach it in non-conventional ways. One of my personal and professional passions is connecting student learning to the global classroom. Every summer I take students on international learning tours throughout the world. So far we have visited Italy, Greece, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. My belief is that exposing students to the world around them makes the subject matter we learn in class come to life and also helps boost student confidence, enhance communication and gives perspective that only experiential learning can provide.
