A lifelong educator, I have taught English from seventh-grade to college seniors. My experience has included both teaching in Iowa, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. and working as a consultant for the College Board in AP English Language and Composition and in AP English Literature and Composition.

  • Ph.D. English, Louisiana State University
  • M.A. English, Arkansas State University
  • B.A. English and minor in history, University of Iowa
  • Summer sessions, University of Arkansas at Little Rock
  • University of the Incarnate Word

In addition, after Hurricane Katrina the Recovery School District in New Orleans employed me as a consultant to establish AP English courses in their high schools. For three years I worked with administrators, teachers, and students; both AP English courses were successfully implemented. Prior to Katrina no AP courses existed in the New Orleans public schools.

During my twenty years as a consultant for the College Board, I gave presentations at weekend conferences across the country and in Mexico. The primary topics included literary analysis, writing instruction, and classroom strategies. In addition, I taught four-six, four-day AP Summer Institutes in both AP English courses every summer in many states and served as a Reader scoring AP exams.

I have also presented at the Texas NCTE Convention and at the National NCTE Convention.
