Degrees and Certifications:

I am in my 26th year of teaching, having been educated at Vassar College for my BA in English and Education, and received my M.A. from Middlebury College and Oxford University, UK. I have taught first and second grade for the entirety of my teaching career, enjoying the teaching of reading and the acquisition of expressive language.
I am married to a 3rd grade teacher here at ASM, Mr Leach. We have two children at home, Adam and Matthew, and enjoy spending time together here and in Maine over our summers. We have a dog named Ruby, three bunnies named BB, Lully, and Little Phi, and two kittens named Hawk and Sparrow. We love our animal friends inside and outside.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, experimental cooking, and lately, bird-watching and learning more and more about birds. It's my new hobby!
