Other information about me:
Years as a teacher: I have been teaching for about 12 years as a middle school literature teacher.
Children: I have two wonderful daughters, ages 24 and 20.
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 the 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.
