Introduction:

I have been teaching in the educational arena for the past eighteen years. At Paul D. Camp, I serve as an English instructor. The courses in which I teach are English 03, 111, 112, and 211. My teaching modalities are flexible as I teach traditional, hybrid, online, and dual-credit classes. As an educator, I use the student-centered approach in my class. The courses in which I teach are designed to help students with diverse learning styles achieve success! My lessons are scaffold so that students build upon their foundational skills and eventually reach a level of mastery of the content through direct engagement, participation, research, collaboration, reflection, and writing! With vigor, I employ various teaching strategies, research based activities, and technology skills to help reach students! At Paul D. Camp, we teach the “whole” student. Our goal is to prepare students for the 21st century skills needed to go out into the workplace confidently and competently to make a real difference.

There so many wonderful opportunities beyond the classroom that make Paul D. Camp a wonderful place to serve! Having received the Paul D. Camp Excellence of Education Award for 2010-2011 year was a remarkable blessing! Moreover, serving as the Literary Club’s sponsor has been a joy to see students evolve into profound leaders as they create and implement the annual Paul D. Camp Literary Festival and serve students and the community through volunteering and other outreach efforts. Serving at Paul D. Camp is a remarkable opportunity to make an impact on tomorrow’s future!
