Degrees and Certifications:
Currently, I teach English I Honors, English I, and Oral Communications at BCHS. This year marks my sixteenth year of teaching. My first year of teaching was at Benton High School. After that, I moved to central for Florida where I taught senior English for two years, and for the next two years I was the head of curriculum and instruction, as well as a female dean. In 2007, I moved back to Benton, IL and accepted a teaching job at Mount Vernon High School, where I spent 9 years teaching Senior English, AP Lit and Dual Credit English 1101 and 1102. Last year, I was finally given an oppoturnity to return to BCHS, where I plan on remaining until I retire many years from now.
In addition to teaching, I also have the privelege of coaching the BCHS Rangler Girls alongside Lyndsey Moore. We are excited about continuing to build upon the legacy that has such a rich tradition at the high school.
