Welcome to The Owl! 


Journalism is such an incredible field that provides a vast array of career options. It is my mission to bring industry-level journalism skills to Paris High School students. Prior to my teaching career I was on the editorial staff for a luxury lifestyle publication called PaperCity Magazine in Dallas, Texas. It was during my employment there that I realized I wanted the opportunity to teach what I knew to those who would soon be entering the workforce. I still love to write my own pieces and spend my “free time” freelancing.


In today’s society it is imperative that you are well-versed in oral and written presentation. Journalism gives you daily practice with those skills and so much more. As a part of The Owl Staff, you will obtain the following skills:


Masterful use of English language in general

AP Style

Graphic Design

Advertising Sales



Editorial Composition



I can’t wait to begin my second year as The Owl adviser and watch my students amaze me yet again!
