|IHS Teacher Since:||1994|
I came to Independence High School directly out of college, way back in 1994. It was only my second interview, and I was thrilled to get That Phone Call from then-principal Mr. Gardner offering me the job. In my time here I've taught, in order, English 1-2, English 3-4, Communication Arts 1-4, Accelerated English 1-2, English 7-8, Aspire To Teach, AP English, Education Professions, and Advanced Education Professions. I have coached Tennis, Speech, Debate, Student Congress, Chess, Scholastic Bowl, and Academic Decathlon. I currently sponsor the National Honors Society and FEA organizations, and plan to stay at IHS for a long, long time.
