    This is the start of my 9th year here at Bangor Area Middle School. I  will be married to my husband Jeff for 17 years this year.  We have three children, all teenagers.  Jeffrey is 18, Arabella is 17 and their sister Rhyan is 15.  Our family has 5 pets.  We have a dog who is a Schnauzer mixed with a Mastiff and her name is Darla.  We have an incredibly spoiled, overweight cat named Petunia who is 14! Our pot-bellied Pig is 5 and his name is Piggie Smalls (he's just the coolest) and my son has 2 birds (which I am absolutely terrified of) and their names are Broccoli and Winter.  We love to travel and see the country.  We have as a family visited 33 states but I have 2 more than they do.  Our goal is to visit all 50 states!
    My favorite thing about teaching middle school is the student's sense of humor and watching their confidence grow throughout the year.
