Dear Team 6B:
I am so excited to meet you! I have taught both middle school and high school grades, but I'd like to share a secret: no matter what anyone tells you, middle school is so much FUN! It's my favorite! The greatest teacher I ever had was my 7th Grade ELA teacher Ms. Farmer, and she is the one who inspired me to become an English teacher becuase she showed me how awesome and important reading is in our lives. I hope something inspires you in 6th grade, too! Even if you do not consider yourself "a reader," it is my goal to help you find at least one story, poem, or book that really rocks your world this year.
How did I get to have this amazing career doing what I love? Well...
I began my career in the Duxbury Public School System in 2010 by teaching 8th Grade English at Duxbury Middle School for two years. I then went on to teach 9th and 10th Grade English at Duxbury High School for five years, and I was thrilled to return to my “middle school roots” as the Reading teacher of Team 6B in 2017!
I graduated from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. In 2011, I graduated from Lesley University’s School of Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a Master of Education degree, specializing in Middle School English Language Arts.
Prior to working in Duxbury, I taught at an international boarding school summer program in England, a public charter school, and a vocational-technical high school...but my absolute favorite is teaching here at Duxbury Middle School!
When I am not teaching, I am raising my beloved 3-year-old daughter with my husband at our home in Lakeville, having fun with family and friends, and of course, READING! I like to say that I first started my reading obsession by teaching myself how to read (Good Night Moon) when I was 5 years old (I was too impatient to wait until kindgergarten, so I just decided to learn on my own!), and haven't stopped since!
I am looking forward to a great year with you!!!
