At the same time as teaching full-time at Cerro Gordo High School, I have also taught at Richland Community College, have been a Teaching Assistant for courses through Harvard University Extension School, and continue to teach as an adjunct instructor at Millikin University. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and Drama with 6-12 teacher certification in both as well as gifted certification, a Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction, and a doctorate in Education and Leadership. In 2014, I earned a Master’s of Extension Studies in Liberal Arts in the area of Humanities with a concentration in English through Harvard University Extension School, where I was honored to receive the Thomas Small Prize. Recent publications include the poem "Another degree earned: Liminality begins" for the Illinois English Bulletin and the paper "Fangs in the cornfields: Teaching vampire literature to nontraditional students in the composition classroom" in The Vampire Goes to College.
