A Few Things I Love . . .

I love being a lifelong Alabamian! My husband and I moved to Florence in 1982, expecting to be here 2 or 3 years. Florence has been home ever since!

I love the magic of reading! I've visited foreign countries, traveled into the past AND the future, and even gone to outerspace . . . in books!  

I love learning . . . in formal or casual settings. It's wonderful to hear the stories of someone who has the rich education of a well-lived life!

And I especially love learning from my students while they grow in the areas of communication: reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and thinking!  This year of learning together is going to be amazing!!

What I Teach . . . 

In Creative Reading & Writing, we'll work to maximize our communication skills through activities that let us TWIRL . . .
