I graduated from Middlebury College in 1994 with
a degree in English, and
then, several years later, obtained my Master's Degree
in Education through The
University of Vermont. This is my twelfth year
teaching at Mount Abe. I love teaching
English. I truly believe, as was said in
the movie Dead Poets' Society, "No matter
what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."
My goal is that
every student leaves my class with a heightened
confidence in reading, writing,
speaking, and listening. I also hope that
students develop an excitement for, and
love of, English.
