I’ve been fortunate to have taught at Essex Middle School since 1983. Each day is a new opportunity to find enjoyment in being active with my learners be it playing a low organized game, discovering a new activity like pickleball, becoming more physically fit doing Crossfit or getting outdoors on a brisk, sunny winter day to XC ski. I love my learners' excitement, enthusiasm, energy and love of learning. No two days are alike and I sometimes just hang on for an amazing ride.
