I'm a working mom in Toronto, Canada (a middle-sized North American city.) I'm a fan of books, competitive swimming, Spanish, French, theatre, film. I've also had a great time writing and producing school musicals. This year I'm on sabbatical from my job teaching gifted children and French at a suburban school. I've just finished working with the greatest class of grade sixes ever! As you can see I'm very enthousiastic about teaching -- thus the year off.
