Welcome to my website where you can learn about the classes I teach and the clubs I advise. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and have a BS degree in Secondary English Education. Grammar and literature have always been passions of mine along with working with teenagers, which is why I returned to school while being a stay-home mom.  I am married and a mom of two children and one fur baby. Hickory High is a great school full of opportunities academically, athletically, and within the arts. 
 
This year I will be teaching English I Honors, English I CP, English III Honors, and English III CP. Each class will be learning grammar, literature, and fundamentals of writing. The English III students will also be completing their required component of the class- the research paper.

I use Google Classroom for posting assignments and for turn-in of selected assignments. This is a great tool to keep in touch outside of the classroom. If you would like access, please email me for the information.

I am the advisor of Juniorettes. Juniorettes is sponsored the Junior Women's League and we are a community-service based club. We work with various organizations throughout the year. The girls utilize their time volunteering at other schools, making blankets for Children's Advocacy Center, and collecting items for donations for various projects throughout the year. 
Also, beginning this year, I am the advisor for Student Council. Student Council is the student governing body for HHS. I look forward to bringing back many traditions and creating new ones here at HHS. 

My goal is to be an involved educator-not just a teacher in the classroom. If you have questions or would like to contact me, please do.
