I teach 7th grade English at Schroeder Middle School. I enjoy reading, playing racquetball, and doing puzzles, especially cryptoquips and crossword puzzles. I double-majored in English and Latin, and I have taught at the secondary level over the last 26 years.
I learned this word when I was in a Summer Institute of the Red River Valley Writing Project. I sometimes realize when this word fits me, especially when my 7th graders look more befuddled than usual.:)
