This is my fifteenth year of teaching English. I have spent most of my teaching career straddling the line between middle school and high school. I love those eighth and ninth graders!
I am always mixing it up! I love engaging students with lessons that reach far beyond the classroom. As much as I can, I create lesson plans that appeal to all learning styles. In our classroom, we do a lot of reading, writing, and kinesthetic learning...lectures are few and far between.

I'm married and have three really great kids. My oldest daughter will be a freshman in college this year, my middle daughter is currently learning how to drive (YIKES!) and will be a sophomore in high school, and my fifth grade son will continue to keep me on my toes.
