Raised in northern Vermont, I attended Bennington College and the School for International Training in Brattleboro. I served in the Peace Corps for two years in south-western China and spent an additional two years teaching English to musically gifted second through fourth graders in the capital city of Beijing. More than a decade ago, I began teaching at GMUHS as the seventh grade Language Arts teacher, transferring to the high school the next year, where I teach eleventh and twelfth graders American Literature, Senior English, Wilderness Literature, and AP English. I like to believe I offer a rigorous but challenging curriculum that allows students to meet their potential, balancing traditional, classic texts with contemporary literature. In my spare time, I like to cross-country ski, rock climb, and hike mountains.
