Thanks so much for coming to my teacher page on the Bellefonte Area High School web site. I hope you find my page helpful and informative.
I taught secondary English at the School District of Lancaster for about seven years and then was an assistant principal in the Bellefonte Area School District for about five years. After a two year hiatus at Penn State, I decided to return to my passion of working with high school students via reading and writing. It was a great decision, and I am enjoying the students very much.
My English classes stay faithful to the district approved curriculum and also feature an emphasis on the American Renaissance and the writing process. Our faculty and administration have worked hard on developing outstanding curriculum aligned with the Pennsylvania Common Core standards. So, that formal aspect of our curriculum is firmly in place. When appropriate, I enjoy supplementing the curriculum with some of my favorite essays, short stories, and poems, and well as focusing on the writing process. It's a lot of fun, and I enjoy it very much.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. It would be great to hear from you.
