I have taught for six years in Atlanta, Georgia and three years in Bangkok, Thailand. I have taught Language Arts (G.7), Social Studies (G.7), Literature (G.9), and Creative Writing (G.10-12). After earning a B.A. in English and B.A. in History from the University of Georgia, I completed an M.A.T. in Secondary English Education from Mercer University. While teaching, I have been involved on campus as a swim coach, as well as the founding faculty sponsor of multiple student projects, including a literary magazine and school newspaper.

Professional Goal

My professional goal is to learn alongside my students, and in the process, convince students that being a teacher is a wonderful job that they would enjoy. I want to make education contagious for students, because our students will become the educators of the next generation, whether by becoming lifelong learners, future parents, or community leaders. They might even become teachers if they see they fully see the potential of the classroom.
