Hi! I am the Instructional Coach at ACRHS and TCRHS. It is my job to help integrate literacy and best practices into daily instruction. I learn new, research-based strategies by attending trainings and by observing great teachers, and then I share those practices with my colleagues.

I graduated with a B.A. in Education from UNC-Chapel Hill 
and a M.A. in English Composition & Rhetoric from NCSU.  In addition to coaching, I serve as our district's NBCT Candidate Support Provider. I've taught middle, high school, and college English in Morganton, Raleigh, and Asheville. In the summer, I write teacher guides for Penguin Books. I enjoy hiking, reading, and spending time with my husband, our daughter, and our two dogs.

Here is my schedule:
ACRHS Monday, Tuesday, every other Friday

TCRHS:   Wednesday, Thursday, every other Friday

video/phone/email coaching: 
Monday-Friday 9am-11am; 1pm-3pm
