About Me

I currently teach English 9 and English 9 Honors. I have also taught many other courses at SFHS including AP English Literature and Composition, English 10/10H, English 11/11H/AdvH (now AP English Language and Composition), Poetic Imagination, American Short Story, SAT Prep, and Writing & Public Speaking. My family keeps me very busy, but when I'm not with them, you can usually find me grading papers, reading a book, playing the guitar, traveling, or watching birds. My job as a teacher may best be summed up in this thought from Robert Hutchins, "It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts... it is to teach them to think, if that is possible, and always to think for themselves." I look forward to helping you in this journey!
