• Welcome to Room 614 where we #slayELA 

    I’m looking forward to another great year teaching my favorite subject to my favorite age group. Any job that includes reading YA books and talking about them with tiny humans is the greatest job in the world.

    I work hard to make my classroom the place where even the most reluctant readers will find a favorite book. Let’s make it a great year!

    “It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
