  • I come to teaching later in life, after a career as a newspaper reporter and editor. I finished my degree in English and earned my Connecticut teacher certification in 2000 and my Masters Degree from Wesleyan University in writing and creative writing in 2007. I have been teaching English at Woodstock Academy in Woodstock, Connecticut for the past 13 years. I have taught every grade at every level in this regional independent high school, including ELL classes to international boarding students. I have served as an adjunct professor of freshman English at the University of Connecticut. I have also taught many SAT prep classes. I have recently moved to Amesbury, MA because my husband left his job in CT for a higher level position in his field in a town just north of Boston. I loved my job so much that I spent six weeks commuting to Woodstock Academy in the beginning of this school year, but the four hours of driving per day was just too much of a commute. I am actively pursuing teaching jobs in Northern MA and in the meantime, subbing at Amesbury High School. I'm hoping to supplement my income with some tutoring. I am an excellent English teacher, and I really love my subject matter; however I'm a bit technologically impaired as you might be able to tell from my sideways profile picture!
