Introduction I've been teaching middle school for 23 years! Ten-year-olds are such fun to teach. I love to exercise. Swimming is my favorite sport. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my kids youngest daughter play soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. i also enjoy traveling to various collegiate cross country meets where I enjoy watching my oldest daughter, Shannon run. I love visiting my brother and his family in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I names my homeroom the Tetons after Grand Teton National Park. My favorite hike there is Inspiration Point. I spend as much time as I can at Higgins Beach and Acadia National Park in the summer. I love being able to introduce my students to genres that they didn't know existed and then helping them find books that they really can't put down!
