Young people inspire me daily. Together, students and I will create an engaging and creative classroom environment which is a cozy and comfortable place to learn and grow. It's a safe place to show strengths, learn from mistakes, and to help each other grow socially and academically. The expectations for all of the learners, including me, is trying to do the best work, be prepared and ready to learn.
Character is how you live your life when no one is looking is my personal motto(anonymous). Family is so important to me. My husband is my best friend, and he is an excellent teacher at the high school. We have written one book together, and we are researching our next book. We are fortunate to have three grown-up children. Bailey is a junior at the University of Oregon, and she is studying journalism. AJ just turned 23. He lives in Ohio, and he works as part of the Wright Motorsports Team. Taylor is 33, and she is a key costumer for many HBO series and movies. She lives in NYC.
When I'm not in the classroom or reading my students' works, I love to watch movies, play Words With Friends, take road trips with my family, bake yummy treats, and of course, read great books!
