About Me


"Adventure is out there!" 
(from the Disney movie "Up".)

This is my inspiration for this blog and my life.
I love to travel to new countries, new states, new cities, and even new places on the internet.  I find all sorts of new and interesting things that way!  And these are things that I bring back to my classroom to make it an even more fun and interesting place to be!

I blog about the things I find or create to hopefully give back more than I take.  I think in some small way this could make life just a little bit better.

I have been teaching Middle School Language Arts and Special Needs for 21 years in Florida even though I was raised and educated in upstate New York.  

I have been married to the love of my life for the same amount of time - 21 years - and together we have two incredible sons - Christopher and Dean.
