Grade(s): Middle School
I was born in CA, but lived much of my life abroad--Japan, Hong Kong, Zaire/DRC, Belgium, Canada, Puerto Rico. I have traveled extensively to various countries, visiting most of the continents. Being a busy mother of four children, I took a sabbatical from college to raise my children. After the youngest was in third grade, I went back to school at Universidad de las Antillas, obtaining my BA in Education, then beginning my Masters immediately at Southern Adventist University in TN. I have been involved in education for many years, in both classroom teaching and administration. My passion is literacy and I love getting kids "hooked" on reading and literature--for lifelong learning!
