              An Introduction
Originally from Greenup, I am thrilled to continue another great year at Greenup County High School. With a Bachelor of Arts from Morehead State University in Secondary English Education and several years of teaching experience, I am proud to be a Musketeer. I hold a Master of Arts in Educational Technology and a Master of Arts in School Administration. Currently, I am pursuing an additional degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I love to travel, spend time with friends, read, and shop. I'm an avid believer that one needs to remain a lifelong learner.
This year, in Advanced English II, we will focus on multiple genres of literature which originate from various sources. Yearbook students will be working diligently to produce a yearbook that highlights the many great attributes of GCHS, while Advanced Placement Language and Composition  and Advanced English IV students will read multiple novels and other forms of literature throughout the school year. I am certain that this will be one of the best and most exciting years for the Musketeers.

welcome to leave a voice message, and I will return
