You Have won a pair of Halloween ATCs if your name is Scary Cheri, or Trisha too, or Eileen the paperqueen ! Please e-mail me your snail mail addresses so I can pop these babies in the mail for you! Do you think I'll scare all the little kids when I answer the door like this?
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
