I truly enjoy my position as an English teacher here at Wayne County High School.  I graduated from Wayne County, and I enjoy the opportunity to give back to the school that started me on my path in life.  I enjoy literature and literary interpretation, and it was this love that first motivated me to want to share it with students.  I enjoy getting students involved in literature, which is typically seen as a "stuffy" or "boring" subject.  I also like helping students to improve as writers.  Every student has the potential to do well.
