    Welcome to my website!  I am excited to be back at Upper Merion for my 19th year.  My previous teaching experience includes teaching at a public high school in Chester County, teaching introductory literature and writing courses at two universities in Maryland, and teaching at a community college.  I have a bachelor's degree in English from The Ohio State University, a master's degree in English (Rhetoric and Composition) from Salisbury University, and teaching certification from West Chester University.

         Beside teaching 12CP English, I also teach AP English Literature and Composition through Virtual High School (VHS), am a Gifted Coordinator, and am a site coordinator for VHS. For all course information, please access the course in Schoology.
