Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my classroom! I've taught English at New Albany High School since 2007. I primarily teach juniors in AP English 11 and in English 11 - American Literature, but I also occasionally teach freshmen in Introduction to the Humanities. I facilitated English 9 and English 11 in VLP during the 2020-2021 school year. I've been Dean of Taylor House since the beginning of house, and I will be a Dean of Nest starting in the 2021-2022 school year.
I'm a proud graduate of Ohio Dominican University where I received my Bachelor's of Art in Integrated Language Arts AYA 7-12 and of Miami University where I received my Master's of Education in Educational Technology.
I'm married to Dr. Ben Trotter, and we have two adult children - Chloe and Benjamin - and two fur babies - Bristol and Josie. We live in Dublin, but we Trotters are campers, and during the summers, when wanderlust strikes, we answer the call of the open road, hitching up the RV for adventures wherever the whim takes us. The smell of a campfire instantly relaxes me, and sitting in the cool shade of a tall tree on a hot day is a singular pleasure.
I'm also a football fanatic, enthusiastically (and loudly) cheering for my Buckeyes and my Browns. I've had my own fantasy football team for years - The Gridiron Gladiators - how's that for alliteration?
You'll find me in Upper L Hallway room L203.
