    Other information about me:

    Years as a teacher:  I have been teaching for about 13 years as a middle school literature teacher.  

    Children:  I have two wonderful daughters, ages 24 and 21. 

    Married:  My husband and I have been married for 27 years.  He is truly my soulmate.  

    Pets: We have 3 pets, two of which are rescue animals.  My sweet dog is Echo (named after a strong female character in a book...shocker).  Our cat, Abira, is a tiny black and white stray that we adopted; her name means strength in Hebrew.  Last but not least, is our newest addition: Willow.  She is an Austrailian Shepard and Rottweiler mix - but she looks just like a Rotty.  She is enormous.  

    Hobbies:  I very much enjoy reading all types of genres.  I like to hunt and fish...although I do not get to do this as much as I want.  I also love to swim for leisure and exercise.  

    Other:  I enjoy a good cup of dark roast coffee, I prefer dark chocolate to any other, and I have a slight obsession with pens.  Stranger Things is one of my favorite TV shows...those teen actors are amazing.  I adore Alfred Hitchcock movies...we'll actually watch a couple in class this year and apply them to the literary elements/short stories we are studying at the time.  

    Education:  Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education, Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and a Master of Science in Conflict Management.
