          About Me: Greetings! I am an Anderson native and have lived the majority of my life here. After a stint in Columbia for college and a year in Florence for work, I am happy to be returning home to teach at Westside High.
     
          As an English teacher, it goes without saying that I have a passion for reading and writing. However, I do not consider myself the fuhrer of grammar. I enjoy teaching grammar by focusing on great writing as a model for students to emulate, and not correcting the errors of others.
     
          If you are in need of something to read, here are some of my favorite novels:
    1. Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut 
    2. The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin
    3. The Stranger by Albert Camus
    4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    5. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut 
    Credentials: BA in English and MT in Secondary Education English from University of South Carolina
