The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

I appreciate the individual attention teachers have the opportunity to provide students, as well as the freedom to tailor a course's curriculum to those students' needs and interests.

Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

There is a wonderfully supportive atmosphere among students, teachers, and administration that goes beyond the typical classroom setting.

A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

The day I had created a Jeopardy Review game for the upcoming Macbeth Unit test, and one of the students in class had made homemade whoopee pies (this was the class just before lunch and students were ALWAYS hungry!). One student walked in and said with great enthusiasm "Jeopardy AND whoopee pies on the same day -- this is the BEST CLASS EVER!"

My Favorite Book:
Honestly, I am an English teacher. How can I possibly pick just one?
