My first year teaching was in 1996 at Central High School. I most recently worked at Bolton High School where I taught IB Literature, AP Language and 10th Honors. I am reader for the College Board in AP Language, and I recently finished my work for the National Boards. I received my Masters from the University of Memphis in 1996. I am a native of Washington D.C., but I graduated from high school in Minas Gerais, Brazil. My oldest daughter will be attending UT Knoxville in the fall, and my youngest is a junior here at Bartlett High School. This is my first year at Bartlett High School, and I am very excited about being a Panther!!!
