Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Pickens High School! I have taught at PHS since 2000 and have worked with many different classes and activities. These include English 9, 10, 11, and 12; Honors English 10 and 11; Contemporary Literature; and Journalism. This year, I will be teaching AP Literature and Composition for the first time. I've also sponsored the Academic Bowl team, the National Beta Club, SnapDragons Photography Club, the Prom Committee, and the PHS Student Government Association.
I earned both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English at the University of North Georgia and completed my Specialist's degree in 2012 through an online program with Valdosta State University. I have recently completed a Leadership Certification program with UNG. I am proud to be the co-chair of the PHS English department with Mrs. Kanyon Petti and encourage you to contact me with your questions and concerns.
I sincerely look forward to working with you, and I hope that this is the best semester of school that any of us has ever known!
