I received my Masters degree in English from MSU in 2000. My areas of specialty are Modern British Literature and Composition Theory. I've taught in some capacity since 1998, including private tutoring, alternative schools, colleges in Missouri (MSU, Drury) and Colorado (Front Range Community College), private schools, and public education. I am currently working on my Ed.D in Curriculum and Instruction through Lindenwood. Before that I received my Bachelors of Science in English from Drury University. I am passionate about student centered learning and changing the way we "do school." I'm even MORE passionate about making teachers feel supported and successful in the classroom.
