I am a fourth grade teacher in Massachusetts who relishes the opportunity to mold the children entering my classroom into curious, compassionate, and responsible young citizens of the community.  You can find me just about anywhere enjoying stacks of books – pleasure, professional and middle grade to young adult titles.  I ache for time to make bolognese sauce, salsa, and rustic fruit tarts using the freshest ingredients possible!  Yoga, swimming, and long walks with our Golden Retriever, Leo help ground me and fill me with the energy I need to be my best self.  My family is my center and we spend oodles of time together at various skating rinks, dance venues, ski mountains, and cultural events during the school year.  Summer is a chance for all of us to slow our pace, notice our surroundings, and breathe in the fresh mountain air of New Hampshire.
