Thanks for visiting my blog. I am a high school English teacher in Newnan, GA where I work hard to make a difference in students’ lives in Room 128, my school and community, and education as a whole. My goals are to:

Advocate for the next generation. Millenials and Generation Z often get a bad rap in today’s society. I, however, believe they are simply misunderstood or products of the environment in which we the adults raised them.

Follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or connect with me on APLitHelp if you’re an ELA teachers. You can also find my writing on Edutopia and BAM! Radio Ed Words where I, along with other committed educators, share what we are doing in our classrooms and thoughts on education.

  3. Hi Susan — I really loved your character complexity visual posted on #APLitChat last night. Do you post things on TPT or is there any way I could get a copy of it? I am teaching Invisible Man to my AP students now and I feel it would be a great way to understand more than one character. Thanks!
