Welcome to English II and English II Pre-AP as well as Independent Study in English (College Readiness). This is my second year teaching at Lockhart High School. I moved here in the summer of 2015 from Victoria, Texas, where I taught Junior English at a small rural school about 25 miles north of Victoria. I have been teaching English for over twenty years, most of them in Victoria. I have a 26-year-old daughter who lives in South Austin who just graduated with her Masters in Social Work and got engaged to her long-time boyfriend. I live in Kyle and have a gray tabby cat named Watson.
