As a former high school science teacher and mother of three, I bring my love of books and reading into my classroom to spark the interest of and provide examples for preservice teachers. In addition, I work in a variety of classrooms using literature to generate questions that drive students to “find out more”! My own children, 16, 14 and 8 are book lovers above all else and are on the road to lifelong learning!
