Welcome! I am excited to be back at Nicholas County High School and begin my 11th year of teaching! I began teaching high school English at NCHS the second semester of 2014-2015 school year. This year, I will be teaching English II, Honors English II, 7th grade English, and Journalism/Mass Media. In Journalism, Mrs. McCord and I will be working with students to construct articles to be published in our local newspaper as well as produce a news show to be uploaded to our school website periodically.
I am originally from Carter County, but have resided in Rowan County for over twenty years. I graduated from West Carter High School in 1995,received my Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Morehead State University in 1999, and completed my Master of Arts in Teaching from MSU in 2009. My teaching certifications include English & Communication, grades 5-12, and Mathematics, grades 5-9. In addition to teaching experience, I have wide range of experience in the communications field. I feel that I can bring my field experience with English and communications into the classroom to prepare my students for the skills needed to succed in any career path they choose.
