I am the proud parent of a high school freshman (Cassaday) who keeps me busy with homework, ASB activities, volleyball school and club games, friends coming over (almost) every weekend, and all the other typical teenager stuff. My boys, Jake and Conrad, are just happy if I feed them on time and give them a pat on their bellies. Yes, they are dogs.
I am a 6th grade English and Social Studies (GATE) teacher at James Workman Middle School with Palm Springs Unified School District. I am celebrating my 9th year with the school/district.
I am the daughter of a retired school teacher. I guess education naturally flows in my veins.
When I am not caring for my family, attending extra-curricular events, lesson planning, or grading student work, I love to get outdoors and take in some fresh air. I love to hike especially in the cool mountains. When my mind, body, and soul crave something less strenuous, I love to read a great historical fiction book.
