I am entering my twenty-first year of teaching high school English. I feel lucky that I have chosen a career that I continue to love, and I am even more excited this fall than I was all those years ago. I continue to find teaching new and exciting, and my students continue to make me smile every day. I taught for fifteen years in Texas then relocated to California where I feel I have found the place where I belong here in Milpitas.
My husband, MR. Roy, also teaches English here at Milpitas High School, and my oldest daughter is a juniot at MHS this year. My younger two children are twins, aged fourteen.
This year I am teaching Honors English III, English IV, and English I. I have taught almost every high school English course at almost every level over the years, and these courses are some of the best and most exciting I have had the privilege of sharing with students.
