Virtual Library Tour
Born and raised in the Finger Lakes, I moved to the OTHER water region of New York State and found myself at Indian River! I have a background in mathematics, philosophy, and music, so in addition to reading lots of amazing books, I also like working with numbers, thinking, and singing, sometimes all at the same time. I enjoy lots of extracurricular activities, such as (as mentioned above) singing with two vocal ensembles, cooking, gardening, watching the birds in my backyard, playing with puppies, horseback riding, and of course, reading. My goal is to encourage students to enjoy a lifetime of reading and learning. A little laughter never hurt either. Or chocolate.
