I am so happy to be your language arts teacher this year! I have been teaching for a long time, as this is my thirty-first year of teaching. I LOVE seventh graders and teaching seventh grade!
I come to you from Ball State University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in English and journalism, and IU, where I completed my master's degree in reading education.
My husband and I have two daughters. Laura graduated from college in 2007 and works at a museum in Boston. Marianna is beginning the third year of her teaching career and is teaching fourth grade in St. Louis.
Our family also includes two pets: we have a dog who is a Golden Retriever/Border Collie, named ZIGGY, and a cat named Kitty D.
In my spare time, I love to read or scrapbook.
I know we will have a great adventure together this year!
