Michelle received her bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. During her time at CU, she was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honorary Society, Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, and the McNair Scholars program. Michelle is excited to begin her master’s degree in educational leadership at Cameron University this fall.
Michelle began her career in education 11 years ago. She worked as an adjunct instructor of composition at Cameron University and also worked as a tutor in the Center for Writers on campus. Michelle spent five years as an English Language Arts teacher at a Title I elementary school. She currently teaches Advanced Placement English Language and Composition at Eisenhower High School along with English I. Michelle is also the Youth and Government advisor, and along with her colleague Daryl Garner, she runs the Ignition Freshman Advisory Program at EHS. The Ignition program has completed a Lead4Change challenge every year since 2013. Michelle feels that the Lead4Change lessons and project execution has had the most significant impact on her students than anything else she has done during her career.
