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.
