I am an experienced English teacher with 38 years of teaching secondary students. I excel in motivating students to read with intent, to write with skill, and to discuss with intelligence and confidence. I like to encourage students to pursue excellence in all areas and to appreciate the value of the correctly written word and the value of an education.
After all my years of teaching, I have the ability to establish rapport with students and to instruct and encourage a good work ethic.
As the English department chair for many years, I am able to organize and lead large groups of students and teachers.
As English department chair, I have led the English department through staff changes, curriculum changes, learning theory changes, textbook adoptions, and administrative changes.
I have served on countless committees through the years such as the Leadership Committee, the textbook committee, the district gifted and talented committee, various nominating committees for student awards and scholarships, student advisories, teacher professional development committees, and several grant writing and school policy committees.
I have been nominated for Teacher of the Year a few times and have created the Student Ethics Council. I have been class sponsor for several years along with the Readers' Club, the Club for Student Diversity, and the Bible Study group.
As a ninth grade English teacher, I followed the standard curriculum established by the state and the district. This included grammar, reading, writing, literary analysis, and research.
As the English IV teacher, I followed the state and district curriculum with an emphasis on British literature. I also taught journalism and newspaper/yearbook. We had a successful yearbook program which included teaching photography. We had our own darkroom, so we could produce our own pictures. (Back in the old days before computers and cell phones)
This is a private Christian school, and we followed the Bob Jones University curriculum. The literature continued to be focused on British literature, with an emphasis on Christian themes. I also taught French I and Bible theory. As always, I focused on grammar, writing, and research skills. I was also senior class sponsor which involved organizing the senior trip each spring.
I began in this district at Mayfield Junior HIgh teaching ninth grade and pre-AP English. I moved to Putnam City High School and taught tenth grade(English II) and then after one year, I began teaching English IV and eventually AP Literature and Composition. As the curriculum standards have changed in the state, so have some of my methods, but the content has remained British literature with an emphasis on writing. I am old-fashioned in my love of grammar, so I try to impress the importance of it on my students.
Because part of my job at Jones High School was to produce the newspaper and yearbook, I took some classes at UCO during the summer.
This was a course I took to teach students a sensory method of reading. It was mostly for teaching ADHD students.
