American Literature

I have been teaching English in the f2f classroom since 1995, and I've been teaching online classes since 2001. Having been a teacher and a student in both learning environments, I have discovered benefits to both, and I am equally devoted to each.

Raised in a family of educators, I have seen the impact teachers have on their students on a regular basis. So in addition to other great teachers, my family, especially my parents, inspired me to join the team of educators. Interestingly, we have enough teachers and administrators in my family, we could literally start our own school and cover just about every subject area at every grade level. Ha!

Favorite Quotes:
“No, don’t call me a hero. Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs, and get a distress call from the Commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and fly around fighting crime. Those are the real heroes.” - Dwight Schrute from The Office
