About Me


2018-19 will be my eighth year teaching at Helena High. I am also a graduate of HHS–class of 2002!

At Helena High, I have taught English IV:C (British Literature and Mythology) since 2011, Science Fiction since 2012, and AP Language since 2017. I also taught English II from 2011-2017.

Although I am sad to no longer be coaching Speech and Debate this year, I will certainly not be idle: in 2016-17 I established the HHS Travel Club with a lot of help from Mr. Hussey. The group has had two amazing trips so far: London and Dublin in 2017, and France, Germany, and the Alps in 2018. The 2019 trip is slated for Scotland, and I might finally get to go on this one! Scotland is my favorite of all the places I’ve visited so far, so I am very excited about this trip.

Feel free to stop by my classroom or drop me a message any time if you have questions about any of my classes, want to talk about travel, or need to see some cute baby pictures (my little one is a toddler now and learning to talk–time goes by so quickly!).
