Oh Father Where Art Thou?
Have you seen my dad? No? I guess that makes two of us. But don't feel sorry for me. My journey begins the day he got off at the exit ramp. I was born in Giessen, Germany in 19OLD to a German mother and Italian Father. After just two years my dad decided that his journey was not on the same road as mine, and he walked out the door, never to be seen again. Luckily, a few years later, a nice American soldier thought my mom was pretty and that I was okay too. When I was 14 years old, we moved to America where I learned to speak English and eat way too many cheeseburgers. Ja, Ich kann noch deutsch sprechen.
Becoming More Smarter :-)
I received my B.A. of Arts in English with Teacher Certification at Armstrong Atlantic State University aka Armstrong University aka Georgia Southern University (Too soon for that joke?)
Teaching My Heart Out
Right after graduation, I accepted a teaching position at Long County High School in Ludowici, Georgia. They needed an 11th grade American Literature teacher, and coincidentally, I was one. I have been there for 10 years, and they will have to carry my dead body out of the building before I will ever leave. It is truly a wonderful place to work. I am currently the English Language Arts Department Chair and have moved on to teach Honors English and Journalism. I run our yearbook publication and am also the head coach of our Lady Blue Tide Soccer Team.
