About Ms. A

  • Just a few things about me.....I received a B.A.from Binghamton University in Political Science, then two M.Eds. from Lesley University -- one in Middle School Education, and another in Creative Arts and Learning.

    Though I was born on Long Island New York, upstate New York has always felt more like home, a place I stayed with my grandparents every summer.  Many of my writings -- poetry as well as stories -- have been written about this beloved place.

    Reading and writing have always been favorite activities of mine.  I love to write along with students in class, and always have a pile of books I want to read. In fact I'm in 2 book groups -- one of middle school teachers, and one of a group of my friends in my neighborhood.
    This summer I read some new books we had put on the summer reading list, and quite a number of others. So many books, so little time!

    Let me know if there is a book you think I might like!
    Other than love of Language Arts, I'm also an avid runner, and completed two half marathon this year.  I'm one of the advisors to the 7th and 8th grade girls' running club that starts every spring!  I look forward to many more races coming up.  Biking and tennis are other favorite activities of mine. And in case you can't tell from looking at my picture, I love animals!!!  I have a dog, and two cats.
    Looking forward to getting to know all of you!
