Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my website! This is my 15th year teaching at Sentinel High School, and I'm looking forward to a great 2019-20 year. This year, I'll be teaching 2/3 time, and my office hours will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during lunch. I have three sections of English 4 and one of dual credit English 4/ Understanding Film and Media. My background primarily stems from philosophy, English, film, women's studies, and wilderness recreation. I have Master's degrees in Philsophy/Ethics and Recreation Management, Bachelor's degrees in English and Philosophy, and minors in Women's Studies and Film Studies. In class, we often use a philosophical lens when examining literature and film, as at the core of many great texts is an ethical issue. Prior to teaching English, I was a backcountry instructor for almost 10 years. When I'm not at Sentinel, I can be found running, snow and water skiing, and hanging out with my two awesome daughters and one awesome husband.
I use Google Classroom to convey much information, collect assignments, and post videos. All students should join thier appropriate Classroom and use the codes given in class.
