Q: Who are you?

A: I am teacher at Battle Creek Central High School (BCC). This will be my ninth year at BCC and my eleventh year in teaching. In the past, I have taught Advanced Placement Literature and Composition, Senior Pacesetter English, Newspaper, Acting, Creative Writing and many, many other classes. You can find more information about me professionally --including my publications, and past consultant work-- by perusing my resume.

I currently teach part-time (only 4th-6th periods from 11:15-3:30 p.m.) so that I can spend more time with my daughter at home. My husband is a website database developer for Biggs|Gilmore. I am completely addicted to reading (not surprising for an English teacher, I know!) and also love writing, movies, computer games, scrapbooking, and photography.

Q: If I see some activities on your site that I like, may I use them in my class?
A: You may reproduce anything on this site providing that it is for a non-profit (e.g. educational) use and providing that I am cited as the source. If you want to use something in a for-profit capacity (e.g. reproduction in a magazine, book, etc.), please contact me first.

Q: When I clicked on one of your links, I ended up at a website that I consider offensive - how can you have such a link on your website?
A: I have checked over all of the links on this website carefully at the time I originally selected them, however I do not have control over external websites and they may change without my knowledge. The links I have provided are optional resources; I do not necessarily endorse or approve any of their products, services or opinions, and I can not guarentee their accuracy, legality or content. I would appreciate it if you would drop me an email so that I can re-evaluate the link to possibly remove it.
