Degrees and Certifications:
Hi Badger students and parents!
This is my fourth year teaching at LHS and I love it! I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2015. I majored in English and minored in Education through the UTeach program.
This class will further develop reading and writing skills. Together, we will read novels, poems, short stories, and students will read independent books. We will write a variety of genres, but there will be extra focus on persuasive essay writing. This is my first year to teach creative writing.
This class will further develop reading and writing skills. Together, we will read novels, poems, short stories, and students will read independent books. We will write a variety of genres, but there will be extra focus on expository essay writing. This is my first year to teach practical writing.
This class will introduce students to the world of journalism. We will cover journalism history, the different styles of journalistic writing, photography, and page design. This course is required before a student can be on the Badger Tracks staff. This is my second year to teach journalism. I was on The Bark staff at Burnet High School and wrote for The Daily Texan at UT. I love journalism!
Newspaper Production (Badger Tracks Staff)
This class will produce the high school newspaper publication, Badger Tracks, publish weekly stories to the school newspaper website, and write the "Badger News" weekly events page. These students have learned the basics of journalism, and are ready to work as journalists at the high school level. They come up with relevant story ideas at weekly meetings, photograph events, conduct interviews, write stories, and design newspaper pages with my guidance as an adviser. This is my second year to be the adviser of Badger Tracks, and it is something I have been wanting to do since I was a student reporter myself.
The 2019-2020 school year is going to be a great one!
