Although I was born in Connecticut, I have been living in Florida for practically all of my life. I have been teaching high school English since 1988 and have taught AP English for almost every year since 2000. In addition to AP English, I teach sophomore English and research courses. I have been fortunate to serve as an AP English Language and Composition reader since 2003 and have worked as table leader and question leader. I also had the opportunity to serve as part of the AP English Language Development Committee from 2009-2016. I currently teach in a large, urban high school near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. For fun and to maintain my sanity, I practice yoga and read extensively.
