Jamie is the twelfth-grade English and AP English Language teacher as well as the English Department Chairperson at the Army and Navy Academy. She has been at the Academy since 2011. She currently serves as the Faculty Chairperson on the Board of Trustees.

Jamie enjoys working with the Cadets, helping them become critical thinkers and preparing them for life after high school.

She graduated from San Diego State University in 2006 (Go Aztecs!) with her Bachelor’s degree in English for single-subject teaching and earned her Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University in 2023.
