I'm an ESOL teacher for Osbourn High School. I have a B.A. in English from Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC, and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction for ESOL from George Mason University. I've also completed graduate coursework in Reading Education at Campbell University and in Library Science at Kent State University, OH. Earlier in my career, I taught Developmental Reading, Developmental English, and Technical English at Sampson Community College in Clinton, NC; here in Manassas, I've taught 8th grade English and G.E.D. coursework at the Johnson Annex as well as 9th, 11th, and 12th grade ESOL English.
This year I teach ESOL English 12 during G1,
ESOL English 11 during B2, B4, and G4, and
ESOL English 11/12 during B/G3.
You can find me in Room 1208 during B1 and G2, my planning blocks.
