Experience:

Teacher of 7th and 8th graders at Gadsden Middle School

I am currently teaching High School Seniors and Freshmen Composition II. In the past I have taught 9th and 10th graders; I enjoyed teaching Dante Alighieri, William Shakespeare, Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury, and Truman Capote. During the summer of 2011, I discovered I had a passion for British Literature. I became an instant fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and Charlotte Bronte. I just recently found my liking for Anglo-Saxon poetry. I have also taught Writer’s Workshop and Freshmen Composition I.
