LIFE is my experience. Specifically, though, I have taught for fifteen years. I taught a year in middle school in the city, followed by a year of high school in the city. Then I taught high school for twelve more years, but out in the country. This past year, I went back to my teaching roots: teaching middle school in the city.
a little bit of everything
I graduated with honors from high school, college, and my post-graduate university. I'm not big on flying my own flag, so that's as detailed as I'll get there.
I earned a BA from DePauw in 2000 with a major in English literature and a minor in education. I then went on to complete my MA at Ball State in 2005, focused on secondary education. In 2014, I finished my gifted license.
I enjoy sharing my passion for language with others. If I can make them like reading, writing, thinking, speaking, listening, and living just a little more, I'm happy. As for my items in my store, a lot of them are very general, very vague, very minimalist on purpose, so you can make them your own. Use them as a starting point, and then put your own spin on them. Enjoy.
