WELCOME TO WOODSTOCKI teach grade 8 Language Arts at WoodstockMiddle School in Woodstock, CT.Woodstock is a rural, historic community with anagricultural background. Woodstock has moreoperating dairy farms than any other town inConnecticut, and the residents feel strongly aboutpreserving the rural character of Woodstock.WMS is small (≈ 400 students) and as the onlygrade 8 Language Arts teacher, I teach all of thegrade 8 students.
MAGIC I have a 7 year old purebred Arabian gelding named Magic. I have owned him since he was a year old, and I trained him myself. The type of riding we do is dressage. I carry the lessons I learn from owning him into my teaching. Respect, discipline, and consistency are key!
Karma THE KITTIES I have three cats: Spooky, Shadow, & Karma. Spooky is truly my cat, and he is studying for his MSED right along with me. As you can see, he finds literacy assessments rather stimulating.Spooky Shadow & my mom
FOLLOW THE FIFTY I was recently chosen to be a spokesmodel for the Northeast District Department of Health 183 women, divided into fifty “teams” will be the subjects of a highly publicized campaign to achieve heart- healthy lifestyles and raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women. The focus is not on visual outcome, but the importance of lowering the risk factors that are impacting your health on the inside. Emphasis on being a successful „role‟ model rather than a „runway‟ model.”
