         As an English and History teacher, I am committed to providing your student with a supportive educational environment where they are able to safely and confidently express themselves. My class operates as a collaborative opportunity to make studying English Language Arts, World History, and U.S. History an exciting and rewarding process. Engaging with these content areas has the potential to help students develop strong, positive relationships with their peers. It is my expectation that, while working and learning together in my class, students will establish valuable, enduring friendships based on the shared values that make us proud to be Gateway Guardians.


         I intend to make the most of the instructional time I have with my students by learning as much as I can about each of them. I am dedicated to helping your child acquire knowledge and skills that will support their individual goals, both in school and in life. My goal is to provide every one of my students with educational opportunities that empower them to pursue their interests and develop a lifelong love of learning. 


         I believe that frequent parent communication is crucial to success for every student. Maintaining open communication with you is one of my highest priorities. Please feel free to contact me anytime at


         We are using Canvas as our Learning Management System this school year. Your student can access the digital content for all of their classes by following this link:


    I look forward to working with you!
