I’m currently in my fifth year of teaching atHenry County High School in Paris, TN where I teach 11thgrade U. S. History. Although I already have aMasters with a specialization in Administration and Supervision, I simply cannot see myself leaving theclassroom any time soon. It is where I truly come alive. This year, I have had the pleasure of being placedon our school’s Instructional Leadership Team. Having more access to student data has really made meaware of the need for remediation in reading. I intend to use the information from this program to help mebring a variety of new teaching strategies back to my community so that we can help our students meet thenew Common Core requirements. I am a self-proclaimed news junkie, so in my spare time, I read andwatch news from all of the major networks. Overall, I am excited to be in this program and I look forwardto sharing this experience with each of you.
