I have always loved reading, writing, and kids, so coming to Canfield each day doesn't feel like work; I truly enjoy what I do. Thanks for sharing your child with me this school year.
On a personal note, I've been married since 2000 to another middle school teacher (the crazies who do this job tend to stick together), and we are relishing in the blessings of three energetic children who delight us daily with their humor. We enjoy outdoor activities together (kayaking and hiking) as well as indoor activities (reading books, watching movies, cheering on sports teams, petting our two Shih Tzus, and playing games).
