What We Do in Advanced ELA 8

Video player keyboard control info.


I grew up in Mobile and decided to return to my hometown after graduating from Auburn University. I absolutely love engaging with my students every day. In my free time, I like to read, shop, write freelance articles, and spend time with my family and friends.

I was a double major at Auburn University earning degrees in both English and journalism. Then, I attended the University of South Alabama and received my master's degree in secondary education.

Before joining the staff at Denton Magnet School of Technology, I taught English 10 and English 12 at Murphy High School. I decided to become a teacher after working as an assistant editor for Mobile Bay Magazine for six years because I love working with young adults and helping them improve their communication skills.

Summer Reading 2022 - 2023

Welcome eighth graders! I am super excited to have you in my class this year! Information about summer reading novels and their assignments can be found on the right in the Important Documents section. Choose two novels from the list provided and complete one of the assignments (either the book trailer or the journal) for each novel. You must complete an assignment for both novels. You can't do the same project for both novels. For example, you can't do two book trailers or two journals. Also, you can't use the same book for both projects. For example, you can't do a book trailer and a journal for The Outsiders. The assignments will be due within the first two weeks of school.
