• Welcome to my English class –

    This is my first year at KHS. I previously taught English for Richardson ISD in the Dallas area. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Literary Studies from The University of Texas at Dallas and a Post-Baccalaureate in Secondary Education.

    As you can probably guess, I love to read. My favorite authors are Jane Austen and C.S. Lewis.

    I believe that words have power – both written and spoken. And the right words at the right moment can change a heart, change a life, and even as history has taught us, words can change the world.

    I not only want to teach you the skills of reading and writing but also the why behind what we do – making it relevant to your lives and connecting it to the world around us.

    I look forward to a great year with you and your families!
