A graduate of Emory University and Appalachian State University, I've been a high school English teacher for seventeen years. Please email me with any questions or concerns about your student. My email is 

We use Google Classroom as our online classroom. Many of our assignments are located there. In addition we use our online textbook StudySync and online grammar platform NoRedInk. 

There are some great ways you can support your student's education at home. First, provide him or her a quiet place free from distractions in which to do homework. Also, encourage your student to read. Kids who read have an easier time in school, getting into college, and finding employment.

Since we're moving to a virtual platform, I will be holding office hours on Google Hangouts from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Image result for google hangouts
 I'm happy to answer any and all questions. I will post daily announcements on Google Classroom and email frequently. 

I realize things are strange and anxiety-provoking at the moment. I'm here for you guys. Please let me know how I can help! 

Thank you so very much for your support!
