    This website is so impressive! First I have to say that before I reached your About Me page I was sidetracked by your post about the Mayor visiting with your students! That is so awesome and I loved that he encouraged them to study abroad. I’m sure with your teaching of English you cover so many different cultures and places so this is exactly what your students needed to hear. I find it crucial to travel abroad to become more enlightened! Your puppy is adorable, and so is your family! Looks like you have a wonderful career going on in Louisville!!!!

    I really enjoyed your website! You have added so many interesting things on it! I’m a big Katy Perry fan and it was interesting to see how she is involved with students. You seem like a very busy person! I admire your drive that is evident through your about me and your webpage!

    I really enjoyed looking through your site. From the looks of your blog you really enjoy teaching and being an active member of the Louisville community! It looks like we share some of the same interest as far as decorating and working out (when the time arises). I look forward to reading more about what you learn and perceive in this class! I am not a K-12 teacher by trade but several of my family members and friends are in education, so I respect what you all do!
