About Me

  • Hello Patriots!

    Welcome back to another year at Westside High. Not only am I a newcomer to Patriot Nation, but this is my first year as a high school teacher. I am honored I get to spend it with you!

    A little about myself: While I’m new to Westside, I am a CSRA native. I grew up in Appling and graduated from Greenbrier High School. After graduation, I attended Spelman College where I double-majored in English and History. From there, I left to attend the University of Kansas where I graduated with a M.A. degree in literature and, years later, a Ph.D. in Theatre and Performance Studies. My main areas of academic interest are American literature and history. In my spare time, I enjoy reading (horror is one of my favorite genres) and writing poetry and plays. I love language, and I love stories.  I am fascinated by how these things allow us to connect to one another and have experiences we’d never otherwise have. I’m excited to explore with you all. Welcome to my class!
