  • A Teachable Moment

    I have twice had the opportunity to chaperone week long trips with the ACHS International Travel Club. Traveling abroad with our students and seeing them interact respectfully and responsibly with people well outside their comfort zone has encompassed some of the most rewarding experiences in my teaching career as they have helped remind me that we are preparing our students to not just excel in our classes, but to excel beyond the walls of ACHS as they become members of a larger community.

  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    This mission statement truly captures why all of us got into the field of education in the first place: to teach kids. While one of my goals is to ensure that students have the necessary skills to be successful in English, a more important goal is to ensure that my students have the necessary skills to be successful in life outside of high school. They need to be able to problem solve and to think for themselves so that, when they go outside of our walls, they are prepared to take on any obstacle that stands between them and their goal.
