I have been teaching for 14 years. I love teaching and being in the classroom. I have a 13-year-old daughter and a big furry dog! She is a Newfoundland, and weighs 120 pounds. I enjoy exercising, eating right, and participating in mini-marathons and other activities that keep me healthy. I also like shopping, reading, horseback riding, and listening to music. Right now my favorite song is Night Changes by One Direction, and a few of my favorite children's authors are Judy Blume and Norma Fox Mazer.
