I am a relatively new teacher in a school that has been identified as struggling in the state of Kentucky. I work for the largest district in the state at a Magnet Career Academy. I began teaching in August 2008. The first day of school, I also found out I was pregnant. I've been a working mother since March 2009.
I received my BA in English from the University of Louisville, graduating in May 2007. By May 2008, I also graduated with my Masters in the Art of Teaching: Secondary English. I completed my student teaching at another local school that has been identified as struggling. I was an early hire for the 2008-2009 school year. I am now a member of the Freshman Academy at my school and the Professional Learning Team Leader for my curriculum.
