My first teaching position was at CSAS as an interim English teacher for two years.

After that, I lived abroad in England for two years teaching at a local secondary school in Lowestoft, UK.  In this time I travelled around the UK and Europe, visiting France, Spain, Italy, Holland, Scotland, and Ireland.  I love to travel!

Upon my return to the states, I began teaching at East Hamilton middle for it's first two years as a school.

I now teach at Hixson High and this is my third year as a wildcat.
