Welcome!

I am a high school English teacher, author, and speaker in Nashville, TN. I have taught in public, private, virtual, and international boarding school settings, and use each location to help foster curiosity and critical thinking through the study of literature and life. I especially enjoy using Educational Technology and Experiential Learning to engage and prepare my students for life beyond high school.

The focus of my *blog is also my tagline: “Using something new in the ELA classroom.” Every strategy, idea, or experiment I have tried, am trying, or will try is meant to build relationships with my students, engage and deepen the level of student learning and, as I share my successes and challenges within each post, I am hopeful that fellow teachers might find the outcomes beneficial in their own instruction.
