I teach at The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, the state’s residential program for academically talented and ambitious students. My classes this semester include Honor’s English, University English I, Introduction to American Film, and Shakespeare I & II. I also run the school’s research program.

Summer Reading for Juniors

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

Please note that students should also purchase The Little Seagull, a writing handbook from W.W. Norton.

    The Delta variant is currently ravaging Mississippi, along with the rest of the United States and the Earth. While people continue to play around with human lives, the Coronavirus continues to mutate and become stronger. Currently we’re in a situation where the newest variant, the Lambda variant, is stronger and deadlier than Delta. I am begging you. If you can get vaccinated, please do. Because unless wide-spread vaccination happens, we are only in the beginning stages of this. COVID will get stronger.
    “The Lambda variant of the Coronavirus, which has been detected in 30 countries, is deadlier than the Delta variant, the Malaysian Health Ministry has said. The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated Lambda as a ‘variant of interest’ showing an increased transmission and resistance to antibodies.”
