Department Chair, World Literature, IB Literature 1 & 2
Howdy. I am a native Texan, recently transplanted to Ann Arbor while my wife pursues a PhD at the University of Michigan. I hold a BS in Radio-TV-Film Production from the University of Texas and a Master of Arts in English Literature from the Bread Loaf School of English. I have taught all levels of AP English, as well as classes for the Intentional Cambridge IGCSE English exam and the British A-Level exams. When not teaching, I keep busy chauffeuring my children about town, watching strange movies and writing strange screenplays. I love to travel, and I have toured 27 counties so far, with the hopes of hitting 100 before I am done.
World Literature, American Literature, IB Literature 2, and Enrichment Coordinator
I studied at the University of Michigan, where I got my BA in secondary education with a major in English and a minor in Earth/space science. I have worn many hats at WIHI, including Head Graduate Assistant, Admissions and Enrollment Coordinator, and Enrichment Coordinator. In every course I teach, I try to inspire my students to be open-minded and caring. I feel blessed to be working in such a collaborative and student-centered environment!
American Literature and IB Literature 1
I earned my Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and my Master's degree from the University of Colorado. I have over 6 years of teaching experience from Southfield and Tecumseh, Michigan and Aurora, Colorado, where I served as an English teacher and literacy teacher. I already know many of our students from my work with Wolverine Pathways. I am skilled in formative feedback strategies.
