         The 2020-2021 school year marks the beginning of my 35th teaching year.  My courses this year include 12 Honors, 11 Honors English, 11 Academic English, Theatre,  Communicationsand Creative Writing.  In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have also served as director/producer for Panthers-on-Parade, the school musical, for 28 years.  

         Outside of school, I enjoy traveling, theatre and reading.  Some of my favorite travel destinations include Normandy, the Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland, Amsertdam, the Oregon Coast and national parks.  Some of my favorite Broadway musicals include Rent, In the Heights, Les Miserables, Once on This Island, Memphis, Dear Evan Hansen, Come From Away, Hadestown and Ragtime.  Some of my favorite literary texts include Look Homeward, Angel (Thomas Wolfe), the Harry Potter series, (JK Rowling) and historical fiction in general.  

         My favorite inspirational quotaion ~ "Remember, with all there is, why settle for just a piece of sky?"

         My favorite teaching mantra ~  "Organization is the key to success."
