I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an English major from Angelo State University in 2008. I recently completed a Master of Arts degree and earned certification to teach Dual Credit English courses in affiliation with El Paso Community College. As a part of my graduate education with Tarleton University, I had the opportunity to present my research on dual credit classes in borderland regions of Texas at The Conference on College Composition and Communication in 2015.

I have been teaching middle and high school English Language Arts for eight years. I believe that successful teachers positively impact students’ lives and, ultimately, the society in which we live. My career goal is to transform students into thoughtful, lifelong learners who understand and value the power of knowledge. I believe this transformation is essential to and the ultimate goal of all education. Students should graduate high school with adequate knowledge to make well-informed life decisions. Also, the ability to express one’s self through written or verbal language is essential to all other areas of learning. I instill the idea that writing is not only a life skill but also a powerful tool that can institute change as it presents opportunities for reflection, debate, and discovery. My teaching philosophy is one that values the student as an individual and as a member of a larger community.
