Welcome to Language and Literature, Year 3.
A little about me: I am a career teacher, and am entering my 19th year teaching.
I am originally from a small island off the coast of North Carolina. Both sides of my family have been there since the 1600s. Growing up, as you can imagine, there wasn’t much to do out there in such a remote place, and it was before the advent of cable TV and cell phones (gasp! the horror!), so I read everything I could get my hands on. Reading became my sanctuary, my escape, and it still is.
As for family, I am blessed with a sister who lives here in Houston with her family, and I live with two very demanding diva dogs, Emma and Sugar.
My time outside of teaching is spent doing the things I like best: reading, drawing, cooking, hunting, fishing, movies, going to concerts and athletic events, entertaining, exercising, getting lots of rest when possible, and spending time with my family.
