Leaving HMS and Entering EWHS (Health Science)

It has been an interesting ride at Henderson Middle School.  My first year of teaching was struck by tragedy when a young lady in my homeroom and first period passes away in a house fire.  I can’t imagine the loss for the parents but the school suffered as well.  My second year was a little easier after becoming accustomed to the students and school.  Now, my third year brought new challenges in being a team leader.  I have enjoyed teaching seventh graders and enjoy their energy, but I feel better suited to guide students that have more of a foundation and are ready to take it to the next level for college or career.  It will be a change of pace to enter the high school setting to teach 16-18 year olds, but I am ready.

East Wake School of Health Science seems like a perfect fit for me, my teaching style, and the content.  I love to read and discuss American literature and in high school American literature is where I began to love reading.  I love to speak and debate so the classes that I will be teaching fit right into my passion.  It will be a joy to get into the classroom, build relationships with students and faculty, and begin to grow a career at EWHS.  I am excited for the things that are in store.
