Now, for a little about me!  This is my 23rd year to teach. It seems like a long time, yet I remember when I first started just as if it was yesterday. I have taught everything from 7th grade to 12th grade English of varying levels. I love technology and innovation in education. I keep abreast of the latest studies with regard to how the brain works and how students best learn. I guess if I were to sum up the about me section, I would say that I love learning and the science of learning.
