About Me
I am a secondary English and sometimes math teacher and mother of 2 kids and a basset hound/pointer mix. I tend to be one of those annoying optimistic people. I look for entertainment that typically has happy endings, because our world has so many unhappy endings it's nice to have hope for what could be. That doesn't mean I haven't had my Poe phase though. I still appreciate the dark and disturbing at times. I love the written word and try to keep all my reading and writing options open. =)
