Parents of the class of 2020, I have created two temporary pages while you await your parent log-ins for Schoology. There is a separate page for ENG 2 and Honors ENG 2 on this site. Just click the page to the right to see the syllabus and other class information. Thanks!

*8/10/2017 NOTE: All class information willl be posted on Schoology for the remainder of the year. I will keep this website available for you to learn some background information about me, as well as for you to access resources on several pages on this site (Parent Information and Technology Tools). Thank you, and see you on Schoology!

Hello, and welcome to English 2/Honors English 2! I am excited to work with you as you navigate your sophomore year, and I can’t wait to see how much you will grow as readers, writers, and critical thinkers!
I am excited to begin my second year as a member of the Creekside Knights faculty. I am originally from San Diego, California, and I began my teaching career in my hometown. My wanderlust led me to a teaching position in Cali, Colombia, where I fell in love with the culture and ended up staying four years! I met my wonderful husband Luis in Colombia, and we eventually made our way to Jacksonville, Florida. I taught at Andrew Jackson High School for four years and supported schools as an ELA/Reading district specialist for three years. This is my fifteenth year in education, and I have taught mostly 9th and 10th grade English and Reading with a brief stint teaching Psychology. I graduated with a BA in English from San Diego State University, and I hold a Masters in Adolescent Literacy and Technology from Walden University. I am one of the class sponsors for the Class of 2020!
       When I am not at school, I like to spend my time reading, writing, watching movies, going to Zumba, and camping at different state parks around Florida. I am a huge YA (Young Adult) fiction fan. You can catch me listening to salsa, merengue, or classical music before and after school. Traveling the world is one of my greatest passions (besides teaching!).
