I have taught English, writing, and English as a Second Language to all ages from elementary to adult.  I especially love teaching writing, American literature, and poetry at the high school level.  My favorite authors are F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, and James Joyce.

My husband and I live in West Wardsboro, and we have four children.  In the summer, we spend a lot of time in Maine where we love to hike, kayak, golf, explore the coast, and eat lobster.  Together, we also operate Dutch Property Management, a property management and vacation rentals company.  I am from Poughkeepsie, NY, and I have lived in Boston, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

.My free time is happily filled with reading, cooking and knitting, and I always have some sort of project in progress at home.  Winter in Vermont is a wonderland, so I try to spend as much time as possible outside, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and downhill skiing, albeit conservatively…

Thank you to the amazing, driven students and inspiring staff of Mount Snow Academy for welcoming me into such a vibrant, impressive community of learners!
