AP English Literature, Drama, Yearbook

Welcome to Room 7217!

You are here because you love literature, graphic design, unanswerable questions...or all three! I teach AP Literature, Yearbook, and Drama. In a previous life, I was a policy analyst until I realized that analyzing legislation is not my passion. In 2003, I turned to teaching and am thrilled to be an English teacher. Curiously enough, I recently found some papers from my high school years where I listed my future career: "High School English Teacher."

Please note: Please visit the links above to access class materials for each class (including syllabus and parent letters).
