Profile Information

My life as a lover of the written word began when I was a child and has resulted in living the life of an educator, a high school English teacher for 28 years and counting. The years have flown by through the busy frenzy of day-to-day life with classes of teenagers, my own two sons, my History teacher husband, and me.  It seems surreal that so many years have passed in what seem only a few.  From the perspective of the many years, I can now look back on my own evolutionary process and realize that I am now at a time in my life when I can return to more of my own interests and development just as I was able to do in my youth and early adult life.  This helps to inform my own teaching as each year I say farewell to seniors who are just beginning their journeys of self-development and discovery.  I too feel a sense of this as I now take more time for weekend backpacking trips, travel, and yoga.  While my school studies have informed my life with knowledge, my experiences have taught me about my own humanity.  My interaction with other people and places and activities enlightens the truth of our human connectedness.  These are the truths I teach through literature and through connecting with my students each and every day.

Besides being a teacher, I also lead community and after school yoga classes, and am regularly seen walking my dog or riding my bike.  In my creative time, I enjoy painting and dabbling in writing both fiction and poetry.
