I currently teach English, speech and theatre courses at Franklin High School in Franklin, Ohio. I am passionate about student growth, literacy, and writing. I coordinate the theatre program at Franklin High School and personally direct and produce two of our three school productions each year. Our Thespian Troupe (1569) is active at the local and state levels. Outside of school I am a director and performer associated with several theatre and opera companies in Dayton, Ohio. I received my EMC status with Actor's Equity in 2013. In 2016 I was honored as a recipient of the Project Excellence Teaching Award.
