Meet Your English Teacher

    About me:

    This is my seventh year at Dawson High School, and my ninth year teaching English. I am a graduate of Baylor University (Sic 'Em!), where I earned a BA in English Literature and minored in History. This year I am teaching PAP English II and AP Capstone Seminar. I have previously taught AP English Literature and Composition, 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.
