About Me

This is my fifth year at Stratford and my eleventh year in education. I graduated from SHS in 2000, earned my B.A. in English from The University of Texas at Austin in 2004, and my M.Ed. from Texas State University in 2007. Previously, I taught 8th grade Language Arts in Austin, where I was named my campus' "Teacher of the Year" for the 2011-2012 school year, as well as a finalist for the district award. In addition to teaching, I am also a writer and blogger and have contributed to Huffington Post, SF Gate, and other publications.

I truly love to teach and look forward to cultivating an appreciation for reading and writing as both a creative outlet and useful tool for acheiving success in the real world. Should you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me!

This is a great resource for the writing process, especially regarding proper MLA format.

Pre-AP English I & II:

This is an accelerated course and students will be expected to keep up with all classwork in an organized and timely manner. While this course is challenging, I am available by appointment for tutoring or extra help, if needed. There will be many assignments that we complete together in class, but most reading and independent coursework will need to be done at home. With that said, I do not assign busywork; all our assignments are intended to cultivate a better understanding of how to read, write, and think.

All students in Pre-AP will need the following supplies:

  • Blue or black pens
  • Red pens
  • Notebook paper
  • Binder or folder (can be shared with other classes)
  • Sprial notebook or journal
  • A novel for independent reading (for the first few weeks, this will be your summer reading book)

Make-Ups

Minimize

 It is YOUR responsibility to get all missing work resulting from an excused absence. Students will have TWO days to complete any missing assignments (which can be found in the make-up work folder in my classroom) and turn it in. If a student misses a quiz or a test, immediately make arrangements to take the missing assessment upon your return to school. I will gladly meet with you before or after school to make this happen.

Class Assignments & Homework

Minimize

Pre-AP and GT:

All assignments have a strictly-enforced deadline and no late daily work will be accepted. If you are absent, you are given TWO days to complete the missing assignment(s) and turn in to me. Should extenuating circumstances prevent you from completing your work on time, a note or email from your parent/guardian explaining the situation is required.
