School Story:

Would like to forget the famous Basel Restaurant field trip, but can't seem to let that one go...

Loved all of my classes, teachers, and classmates, it was a very formidable time of my life and those experiences have shaped the way I educate high school students today - thankful for all that I learned both inside and outside of the classroom

Does anyone build floats with crepe paper flowers anymore?? Long live powder puff... and other puffs which we don't talk about...


Graduated with a BS and MS degree from Southern Connecticut State University - started working at Choate Rosemary Hall school in 1983 and have never left -- hold a variety of positions, teaching and administration - travelled and lived in many places (even for a short time) like Kaneohe, Hawaii; Gaborone, Botswana; Apia, Western Samoa; Taipei, Taiwan; Navajo Reservation, Arizona; Guadeloupe, Caribbean; Bequia, St. Vincent & The Grenadines;Nairobi, Kenya - but have always called Wallingford HOME. Love my job, do some consulting, published some articles, speak at national conferences, and still love pizza and beer at Carini's Pizza, eat at Panda Garden, burgers at Main Street, and reminisce about Sully's bar in Yalesville that is now a Greek Restaurant (a good one, too!). Miss the Chevy Nova but love my Ford Explorer - Miss my childhood friends and still love all those memories running "down the hill" on Yale Avenue to make the bus. Still great friends with Joan Hill - English Teacher -- we meet up every few months and I have vacationed with her family at her beach house in St. Croix -- that is the way to stay connected to your favorite teacher-with tropical drinks overlooking Grape Tree Bay.
