Welcome to John Long Middle School and 6th grade English Language Arts class.  I have been working at John Long for the last 19 years. It's hard to believe how fast that time has gone.  I truly enjoy teaching reading and writing to middle school students and especially love working with 6th graders.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family.  We spend much of our summer time fishing up north. I am excited to work with you and your child and my goal is to make our learning experiences together positive, productive, and fun!
