Welcome to English II and English II Honors! I am excited to be a part of the Iowa Park team, and I am looking forward to a productive year of learning. I started this journey as an English major at Midwestern State University back in 2003. Since my kindergarten days, I have wanted to be a teacher. This is truly my passion. Last year, I completed my master's in teacher leadership with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction. I consider myself first and foremost a student-a lifelong learner, and I hope to impart my love for learning.
My mission is to instill in my students an appreciation for reading and writing. In my class students will focus on learning to read like a writer, and write like a reader so that they discover meaning and purpose for reading and writing beyond the four walls of my classroom. The most effective way to become good readers and writers is through constant practice and reflection.
When I'm not in school, I spend my time with my family. I have two awesome boys (boy moms rock), and my best friend is my husband. I am looking forward to an exciting year in English class! Please feel free to contact me any time.
