Sometimes it seems as though I am a professional student. I have an AS in Social Science, BS in Communications, BA in Education Studies, MAT in Middle Grades Teaching and a MA in Creative Writing. My passion for learning is only topped by my passion for reading and writing. I have had my nose in a book since I was young enough to identify all the letters of the alphabet. I was able to turn this love of education and books into a profession that would actually pay the bills. Currently I am a middle school English teacher. I get to wear the punny tshirt and make teenagers groan as I crack horrible jokes and I love it.
In addition to being a lover of words I am also a Navy veteran. I served from 2012-2016 and come from a long line of military service. I am a 3rd generation Sailor and when I add in service from uncles and cousins, there is over 150 years of service in my family.
