    About Me
     
    Welcome to journalism and publications!
     
     I have been teaching journalism in the district for the past 13 years, and this is my third year at AHS. I also coach academic journalism for UIL competitions.  I have a degree in journalism/ English from Stephen F. Austin State University, land of the Lumberjacks. Axe' Em Jacks! Last May, I graduated with a master's degree  in educational leadership from SFA, as well. 
     
    I am a news junkie, and spend way too much time reading news from different media outlets around the world. I love to teach students to become better readers, writers, advertisers, designers, photographers and critical thinkers. In my free time, I take a lot of pictures and do freelance writing, and spend as much time as I can with my husband and two young daughters. 
     
    The best way to catch the newest information about assignments and grades, is to make sure students and parents are apart of the Google classrooms. The class codes are given in class and are also located on the syllabus sheets. Most assignments will be turned in this manner. 
     
    Google class codes are as follows:
