I began teaching English in 1997, and over the course of my teaching career, I have taught English/language arts or journalism to all grades 6-12 and pre-K. In 2010, I earned my master’s degree in Instructional Technology from Virginia Tech and began a career in technology integration.
I began working at Worcester Academy in Worcester, MA as Technology Integration Specialist and English teacher in 2012. I am currently the English Department Chair at Worcester Academy. I have previously worked for the Weber School in Atlanta, GA, Gwinnett County Public Schools, Houston County Schools, and Twiggs County Schools.
I was selected as the Georgia Secondary Teacher of the Year by the Georgia Council of Teachers of English and a Teacher of Excellence by the National Council of Teachers of English in 2010. I have published a teacher’s guide for the epic poem Beowulf (PDF) and have an article in the July 2006 issue of English Journal—”Toward ‘Moral Perfection': Integrating Judaic Concepts and Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography.”
