I am committed to doing the best job I can everyday and thoroughly enjoy doing what I do: teaching language arts and interacting with students. I have taught English (to all grade levels 7-12) as well as a wide variety of electives including journalism, film, reading, writing, grammar, women's literature, the short story, SAT prep, and literature prep. Throughout the years I have served as newspaper advisor, class advisor. archery coach, MAEA treasurer, and committee member. On a personal level, I enjoy life--laughing and having fun with family and friends, watching a great film or Broadway show, reading an engaging book, doing a challenging crossword puzzle, cooking, gardening, and traveling.
