Greetings! My name is Dr. Michelle Golden, and I am thrilled to be starting my second year as a proud member of the JCCHS faculty. I have taught both high school and college and hold a PhD in Renaissance Literature and Renaissance and Classical Rhetoric from Georgia State University. If you're ever interested in learning more than most people would ever want to know about Edmund Spenser or Renaissance courtesy theory, I've got you covered. In the past few years, I took some time away from the classroom to work for a tech company called wikiHow. I also edited/managed an academic journal while working on my doctoral degree.

When I'm not teaching, you can usually find me hiking with my family, particularly chasing around my two energetic children. I also have a cool hobby: I am a competitive sailboat racer.

For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching AP Lang, Writers Workshop, and yearbook.
