"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one."
- George RR Martin.
I've been teaching for 19 years with 15 years here at Haggard Middle School in 6th Grade Language Arts. I've been married for 16 years and have 3 kids: Aidan, a 3rd grader, Isabella, a 2nd grader, and Emma who is about to turn two. They keep me busy outside of school but are a blessed reminder of why I have chosen this profession.
Reading is my passion and I hope my students come away from my class with a love and appreciation for books. I also love to run, bake, and of course, spend time with my babies at home. This is my home away from home, and I find so much joy in teaching and in students learning! This year has been challenging because of virtual learning, but the students and I have learned so much together. We've had many opportunities for growth, and I feel blessed and grateful. I look forward to a successful year of creating lifelong readers!
