Hi everyone! This is my first year teaching in Onslow County Schools; prior to this school year, I taught in college classrooms in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. I have a Ph.D. (2017) and M.A. (2012) in English from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and an M.A. (2009) in Human Development and Family Studies from the University Connecticut that I earned after graduating from Queens University of Charlotte with my B.A. in English and Psychology. I grew up in North Carolina and am so happy to be back in coastal NC. I love teaching English and working with students to achieve their goals and grow in their learning. I look forward to getting to know all of my students for English II, III, and English IV Honors this year and being part of the Northside High team!
