 Classroom library
I'm creating a classroom library full of materials the students will be excited to pick up. I will gladly accept donations of books and magazines to our library. My students have requested scary stories, mysteries, books about sports and thrillers.

About me
Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a journalist for about a decade. I've been published by The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, The Associated Press and several other national outlets. I've also written for the Hartford Courant, the Connecticut Post, the Journal Inquirer in Connecticut.
My husband and I are the parents of two wonderful children.
