I am a semi-retired high school English teacher with 30 years' experience in the classroom. I have taught all levels of high school English as well as middle school language arts. I have been a certified teacher in South Carolina as well as a National Board Certified teacher. I also have a Masters degree in English from the University of South Carolina.

I have a special interest in developing the literacy of all students through engaging reading and writing assignments and activities. I have studied reading and literacy practices with well-known experts Ellin Keene, Cris Tovani, Janet Allen, Jeff Wilhelm, and Jim Burke. In addition I have had training to teach English as a Second Language.

Photography

Photography

I love to take photographs, especially of nature, landscape, and architecture. I also love to take photos that will keep my family's history and memories alive. I use a DSLR camera, and enjoy the creative aspects of photography. I can share the basics of photography: composition and the rule of thirds, aperture and shutter, exposure, and other basic techniques. I have taken several online photography classes and am working toward certification.

Literature,

Literature

I love to read, and I love to study literature of all types. I have a masters degree in English. I want to help students learn to analyze literature on all levels, the literal as well as the interpretative. I begin with a reader response approach to help students enjoy the literature on a personal level and then move them toward closer, analytical readings by teaching literary terminology and techniques.
