Meet Your English Teacher

  •  

    Seniors: 

    I am NO LONGER taking recommendation requests. Unless you have an email confirmation from me that I will write one for you already, I cannot complete a rec letter for you. I'm sorry. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. 

     

    About me:

    This is my sixth year at Dawson High School, and my eighth year teaching English. I am a graduate of Baylor University (Sic 'Em!), and earned a BA in English Literature and a minor in History. This year I am teaching PAP English II and AP English Literature and Composition. I have previously taught SAT Prep, English I PAP, English II, and English III, and a course on Academic Writing. My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, Sylvia Plath, and Ernest Hemingway. In my free time I can be found reading a mystery novel, drinking my beloved coffee, or watching my favorite Netflix shows.
