I teach grades 10 and 12 at Deer Lakes High School. Prior to this teaching job, I attended the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown; the Deer Lakes School Board fortunately approved my hiring the day before I graduated! I am thankful for the opportunity because DL has become my home. I have grown up here as much as many of my former students, from all of whom I have learned, too.
I enjoy working with high school level students. They are capable of much more than many adults often believe. Additionally, I love teaching literature. Through reading, one may vicariously live through others' different life experiences, therefore promoting a profound understanding of one's life purpose. You may better understand my philosophies after reading the syllabi.
