A Little About Me:
I love to be outside, preferably with my hands in the dirt. Much of my summer time is spent in the flower and vegetable gardens at my home, or harvesting and canning the produce for winter enjoyment. I love being outside and some of my fondest memories are of hikes and other outdoor activities. As a 4-H leader in the 1990s, I have taken two week-long hiking trips, one to South Carolina and one to New Mexico. I love these physical outings.
I have been a teacher at Subiaco Academy since the fall of 1986 and have taught at nearly all levels in the English department. I took over the journalism responsibilities in the fall of 2000 and am currently working with students to produce the school yearbook and a magazine of student literary creations.
One of the joys of being in the English department is that I can help students develop skills as writers; they can use these new skills in many areas of their high school and college years and then into their careers.
