You may think you know me. I'm that lady that stands at the front of the room and tries to get you to think and write. Mostly, we talk about books in class, but we also talk about poetry and plays too.
What you may not know is that I'm passionate about skiing. I love to sew quilts and make clothing. My husband swears that I'm a better cook now than when we first met, and that he has always loved my baked goods.
I'm a nut for the color red. There is a family story that goes with that and I might tell you some time if you ask.
I say “my new home” as you all have been living here for some time now and I have only just arrived here in VietNam and AIS.
Honestly, I’m pretty impressed with the place and i look forward to getting to know each and every one of my new students.
I also am looking forward to getting involved in other ways! I’ve already volunteered to coach the cheer squad– Cheering was only a major passion of my life between 14 and 20, so I hope to share that with my new squad members. If there are any surfers in the mix, please give me some pointers as to your favorite beaches in the area… I would love to go as soon as the surf is up.
If you scroll down from here, you will see many, many photos of my life. Please feel free to look and ask questions that you may have in the comments box below or in the hallway between classes. I’m happy to answer your questions.
Do you feel it? That’s stress. It’s only going to get more intense.
Here is something to make you forget about it for a moment. Friday is a special day. It is the day, WAAAYYYYYYY back fourteen years ago in 2001, that Mr. Harris and I went on our first date. This is a big day for us!
Here are some snapshots from the more recent past. Can you tell which is from the day we got married?
