Subjects Taught


I went to Lee University, and received my Bachelor's in English Secondary Education.


I began teaching at Lake Forest in August of 2016.


Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts! 

In Language Arts this year, we will be reading and analyzing many interesting and complex texts to help us master the Common Core State Standards. This will help you to not only feel prepared for the state assessment, but also for high school.

In my class, you will engage in rich discussions, participate in class debates, and experiment with hands-on activities and projects. There will be a strong emphasis on writing, particularly with text-dependent questions and prompts. We will also practice close-reading strategies to help you understand complicated texts. By the end of the year, my goal is to prepare you to be successful in high school and to cultivate a love of reading within you.

It's going to be a fun year! If you have any questions/concerns, please email me.
