About

I was born in Madrid, Spain, though a am an American citizen since both of my parents were American-born. I have lived in the US since I was two years old. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1999 (GPA of 3.93) from Mississippi University for Women with a degree in English and Education and a minor is Spanish. I have been teaching since 2000. I teach or have taught at every level of high school English, but I love AP Literature the best. I have also been the sponsor of our school's drama club and poetry clubs as well as sponsoring the senior class and Poetry Out Loud. I have three children, all of whom are grown and have left the proverbial nest. I earned my Masters in Literature in 2009 and my National Board Teaching Certification in 2018. I have had several poems and two educational articles published. I have always been a closet poet and writer. I hope to continue writing and maybe someday publish a collection of my work.
