Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

This will be my 8th year teaching at Oiler Nation and 11th year teaching overall. I am looking forward to teaching Pre-AP English II and AP English IV this year. Below are some fun facts about me as well as some of my favorite good reads:

Fun Facts:

  • I love to bake! I really enjoy baking old family recipes and putting a new spin on them.
  • I have an unhealthy obsession with coffee and broadway musicals
  • I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I love Shakespeare with a passion, Doctor Who (a British TV show), Star Wars, and the superhero films. 
  • I love traveling. I've been to such amazing places as Spain, Italy, the Caribbean, and I spent a summer in England studying Shakespeare. 

Favorite Books:

  • Bossypants by Tina Fey
  • Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
