As I begin my 5th year at MHS, I look forward to the new school year with excitement, and I am eager to get to know my students and begin our work. This is my 12th year teaching; I have also taught in Mississippi and Tennessee. I enjoy teaching at Mandeville High because of the wonderful school spirit and sense of community that we have here.
I enjoy teaching English because I get to read my students' wonderful writings. When students share their thoughts regarding our literary selections, I get a glimpse into their inner thoughts and memories of the past or plans for the future. This often provides opportunity to share in my students' dreams and plans. This opportunity is what inspires me as a teacher. This is why teaching is the greatest profession and why it is ever-exciting and new.
