I have taught 8th grade Language Arts at NGMS for 18 years. In addition to teaching, I also run Student Ambassadors with Mrs. Ralph and have a book club. I have two kids, Katie and Zack. Katie has her Masters degree in Journalism from NYU. My son, Zack, got a D 1 scholarship to attend Cal Baptist University for baseball. He is a Finance major. His goal is to play in the major leagues! I am very proud of both of kids. I miss them like crazy because one is in New York, and the other one is in California. My husband and I enjoy going out to dinner with friends and playing cards. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, and I am a member of a book club that meets once a month to discuss books. We read a book a month! I love working out with my best friend and drinking lattes. I am currently getting my Masters in ESL from CU. I graduate in May. I am often writing papers at night, just like you! I love working at NGMS because the students are sweet, and they know I am always there for them. I look forward to them coming back and hearing about how great they are doing in college or in their careers.
