Welcome to 12CP British Literature! This is an unprecedented year and I am both excited and anxious to make sure I provide you with an exceptional experience and prepare you for your next step! Please remember that we are all in this learning curve together! It is imperative that you sign up to REMIND - it will be your direct communication link to me. My colleagues tease me because I never leave my classroom! I try to make myself available as much as possible. With no class to pop into, it is important that we communicate via text, email, or Zoom! I'm looking forward to a great year!

I love to read! Duh!
I am a Harry Potter nut and my dream job would be to work at Hogwarts!
I married my high school sweetheart - 31 years together - 23 married!
I have two beautiful daughters - Maddy (16) and Elly (13) - they are my world!
I truly believe that being a teacher is the best job next to MOM and WIFE!
