Hi everyone! My name is Kari Eubanks, and I am so pleased to be teaching English and Creative Writing for TOPS! Having grown up in Bristol, I am an alumni of Bristol Tennessee City Schools. I attended the University of Tennessee for my undergraduate degree, receiving a BA in English Literature with a minor in music. I then attended East Tennessee State University where I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education. I also possess an EdS degree from Lincoln Memorial University and have begun working towards an EdD from ETSU (I almost typed ETSY. That's probably not the same thing.) My teaching experience includes everything from middle school math to theater arts, so I guess you could say I am well rounded and just a tiny bit dramatic. My true passion is literature and communication, and I have just ascended to rank of captain of the grammar police. (This was a hard-fought honor, to be sure.) I am in my 8th year of teaching, and have truly found a home with TOPS. I look forward to working with you this year!
