As an English teacher, I love the writing process and teaching it to sixth-graders! It's so much fun to see how they learn to write both informational and fictional text during the year. The fictional texts are always imaginative and full of interesting details. I earned a B.S. degree from Jacksonville State University and a M.A. degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. As a teacher with over 25 years of teaching experience, I enjoy having the opportunity to teach sixth-graders, which is my favorite age to teach! I look forward to having an amazing 2020-2021 school-year!
