I became a teacher because I love learning, and teaching is a way to extend that learning.  I also love sharing my love of stories and language with my students and discovering the insights that they bring. The books I read, and the stories, poems, and essays that I write help me make sense of the world and my own beliefs.  Stories and language simply delight me and I love that I have a job that allows me to share that joy. I am an avid reader, writer, runner, rock-climber, and adventure-traveler, and I enjoy sharing all these hobbies with my husband and two children. I am a member of the Michigan and National Council of Teachers of English as well as the Michigan Reading Association.  I am also a Book Love Foundation Grant Winner and Podcast contributor. I am a co-advisor for the student-led newspaper Skybox.  (
