A Little About Me

I grew up in a small town in Oregon on a hazlenut farm.  When I graduated high school I went to the University of Oregon and earned a B.A. in English.  During my time at U of O I traveled to Europe, where I met Mr. McAree.  After my time at U of O, I moved to London, England to live with Mr. McAree and pursue a M.A. in 20th Century Literature at the University of London.  When I finished graduate school I worked at an editor on internationally published medical journals.  In total I lived, worked, and traveled around Europe for five years.  Mr. McAree and I decided that we wanted to make Oregon our home and moved to the Portland area in 2006.  I went to graduate school (again!) and earned an M.A.T. and teaching license in middle school Language Arts, Social Studies and Science, as well as high school English.
