Hi! Welcome to English IV AP and English II

I'm new this year to Tomball High School and new to Texas as well. I arrived this last June from Colorado where I lived for the last 20 years. My first career was in the publishing industry where I did everything from selling advertising to writing press releases to planning business events for up to 2,500 attendees. After almost two decades of that, I decided to turn to teaching, a career that I have always been interested in.
I am coming to THS from a college preparatory school where all students worked on the curriculum for the year ahead of where they were chronologically. My last few years at that school, I was teaching freshmen and juniors with the sophomore and senior curricula. 
My first Bachelor's degree from the University of Wyoming is in Journalism, with an emphasis in public relations. My second Bachelor's degree from Colorado State University is in English Education. I have several hours of Master's work as well from CSU in the area of TESL/TEFL and other English courses.
I'm excited to be working with my students -- YOUR children -- this year. We have a lot of ground to cover and with your support, it will be an exciting journey.
