Welcome to my Language Arts home page.  I teach Language Arts at Tappan Middle School.  My undergraduate degree in psychology is from Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York (now part of Fordham University) and in 2003 I earned a Master's Degree in Education (MAC) from the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!).   

I have completed 14
 years of  teaching in the Ann Arbor Public Schools and I am fascinated by my students each year. I am passionate about books, words and language usage, writing, communication, politics, sports and especially teaching adolescents.  This site contains information about Reading, Writing, Young Adult novels and local events and resources in the Ann Arbor area.
