    Welcome KMS Cougars!
    Get ready for a year immersed in reading, writing, and critical analysis! My goal for this school year is to introduce my students to a love of reading, writing and a passion for historical truth. Each of us is the author of our own life story, and it is important that students live their lives in a manner they wish to be remembered for. Everyone is an author, whether he/she writes in a journal, writes a blog, tweets, posts on Instagram or is a fan of making lists. We are authors and we are recording what is happening in the world around us every day. In my class I want to take the skills that my students already possess and further develop them into talented authors and historians of their generation. 
    This is my 4th year teaching at KMS, and my 8th year in my teaching career. I am a proud Appalachian State University graduate. I look forward to working and learning with our KMS Cougar Scholars!
