  • Organization: National Math & Science Initiative
  • Grade: 10th , 11th , 12th
  • Environment: I am now serving as an English Consultant for the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI). In this role, I facilitate teacher training in week long summer workshops for pre-AP coursework, weekend one and two day workshops for students in AP Language or AP Literature courses, and present at conferences. I am also a Wonder Lead Ambassador and reviewer, and an Item Checker for LearnZillion. I stepped out of the classroom this year to continue pursuing my doctoral degree in English Pedagogy & Technology at Murray State University.
  • Biography: I taught high school English, Journalism, dual-credit English, AP Literature & Language and Composition for almost 9 years at Waggener High School in Louisville, KY before leaving the classroom for the first time in February 2016 to become an instructional coach. I earned my undergraduate degree in English and my first Master's of Arts in Teaching from the University of Louisville. From there, I continued my education by earning post-baccalaureate credits in English from U of L and my National Board Certification. I then earned a Master's of Science in Library Media and my certification as a School Media Librarian. I hope to integrate all of these areas into a doctoral study in the future.
