Here is a little about myself.
I teach 8th grade Language Arts and have taught Middle School for 10 years; currently in my 11th school year. I spent many years in school to pursue learning opportunities both in education and outside of it. I have a Master of Education in Secondary Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in History.
I have an affinity for all things creative. I spend many creative hours drawing, writing and reading all sorts using a variety of mediums that allows me to share my talents with others.
I enjoy reading most genres but seem to read fantasy, sci-fi and historical fiction more. Some of my favorite novels are Ender's Game, Here, There Be Dragons, and Dragon and the Thief.
Since I was younger, I have always enjoyed comics. I read a variety of series from many different publishers; in particularly, Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, and X-Men.
I look forward to the 2017-18 school year!"Every man's work, whether it be literature, or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself." -Samuel Butler
