I've been teaching middle school English for 24 years in Smithfield, Rhode Island.
My classroom is a bright corner of the world filled with learning, laughter, and a huge dose of FUN. My original lessons, creative activities, and quirky games incorporate art, songs, cartoons, parodies, puns, memes, and video shorts, all aimed at total student engagement. I KNOW how to hook middle schoolers, and my state scores prove that my teaching style is effective.

I'm addicted to Diet Coke, Jane Austen, Fixer Upper, and Gilmore Girls. I love my son, my husband, and The Patriots (and Tom Brady!) I’ve taught middle school English for the past 24 years, and I always say, if you want to feel like a ROCK STAR, teach middle school!
