I teach English I, English III, and English IV. This is my second year at River Mill Academy. Previously, I taught academic and creative writing at the university level, ESL in Morocco, and middle school in Norway. My own educational background is primarily in English; I received my B.A. from Macalester College, an M.F.A. (Creative Writing) from the University of Virginia, and an M.A. from Duke University. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities.
