Favorite Quotes
"Each is given a list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone."
-R. L. Sharpe

"The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." 
-William Shakespeare (As You Like It)

Camping, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, biking, camping, running, golfing, trying new foods, traveling to new places, watching new movies or shows, playing new sports, and so much more! My husband and I try to celebrate LIFE as often as possible, which means constantly pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones to gain new insights into the world, and turning everything into a celebration. 

My husband and I are blessed to have two beautiful boys who keep us laughing all day long. We also have a silly clown of a Corgi who greets us at the door when we get home with a seriously enthusiastic bummy wag. As always, ALL opinions are welcome and encouraged in my classroom; however, Corgis ARE the best dogs. ;)

Reason for Teaching:
Elenor Roosevelt said to "Do one thing every day that scares you," so . . . I thought teaching high school would easily accomplish that goal. ;)

In all seriousness, I have the most rewarding job on the planet. I am surprised on a daily basis by the intellect, generosity, and kindness of our students. I often feel like I learn more from my students than they learn from me. Learning about their different perspectives on everything and anything truly enriches my life; teaching them to love literature as much as I do is a bonus.
