I grew up in Pennsylvania, but I have lived in the South most of my adult life. I enjoy college football, and I’m an avid Auburn fan. When I have free time, I enjoy boating, reading, visiting family, and traveling. I have never wanted to do anything other than teach! I love my job: working with high school students and teaching English and writing.
