Welcome! I'm delighted to be your teacher this year. 
A little bit about me: 
I went to a quirky high school (think Fame!) called Interlochen Arts Academy, where I played the violin for ten hours a day and realized I wanted to be an English teacher. After a BA in English (with a minor in philosophy) from The College of Wooster, I worked as a writer for arts and non profit organizations in NYC and Chicago. I went back to school for a Masters in Teaching from National-Louis University, and have completed coursework in the MFA/MCW program at Northwestern. I am a member of SCBWI and a writing coach for the National Blogging Collaborative. I'm also a certified yoga and meditation instructor. 

Research interests: Collaborative writing, Social-Emotional Learning, Mindfulness. 

Club Sponsor: Poetry Club

"Literature was born not the day when a boy crying wolf, wolf came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels: literature was born on the day when a boy came crying wolf, wolf and there was no wolf behind him. That the poor little fellow because he lied too often was finally eaten up by a real beast is quite incidental. But here is what is important. Between the wolf in the tall grass and the wolf in the tall story there is a shimmering go-between. That go-between, that prism, is the art of literature." - Vladimir Nabokov
