It has been an interesting ride at
. 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. Henderson Middle School
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.
