My family, teaching, traveling, reading, cooking, and my faith are my life’s greatest passions. I graduated from college with degrees in English and history, with concentrations in education, leading me to a high school classroom in 1999. I have been teaching English since then and added history to my class load four years ago. I believe the teaching of history and English can be revolutionized by the addition of technology to the curriculum, while still maintaining the sweeping questions about what motivates a person and his/her society. Also, I think most problems can be improved with a cup of tea; actually, I am drinking one right now.
