Language teacher, language learner, wife, mother, adoptee and wanna-be polyglot (in no particular order.)  I am a lover of anything related to language and linguistics, and I have recently re-entered the K-12 world after a long absence.  I am spending my summer learning about and playing with technology so I can be a more effective teacher, and I’m having loads of fun doing it. Aside from my teacher-related adventures, the scent of pine trees and hot granite in the Sierra Nevada make me crazy happy, so I try to spend as much time there as I can.
