Middle School Memories:
The things I remember the most from middle school are the moments that made me laugh the most. I remember the Male Beauty contest and Mr. Burke dressed up in a dress. I remember hanging out with my friends at field day and laughing till I almost cried when one of my friends fell in someone's cooler. I remember laughing at Mr. Walker's corny jokes. I remember singing songs and laughing on the bus when my softball team traveled. I remember watching the Middle School performance of Mary Poppins and thinking the actors were the coolest people in the school. I remember scoring my first basket in a Middle school game, getting my first steal and winning my first game.
I've been teaching English and Language Arts since 2000, and I love my job. My goal is for my students to learn to express themselves in an intelligent, impressive manner both verbally and in writing. I hope their love for writing and reading will grow some in my classroom. Most importantly, I want the students in my classroom to become kinder, better, more thoughtful people as they move toward high school. There is so much good in the students who come through my classroom. I want them to find a way to share that.
I am married to John Tuck and we have two daughters, Nicole and KadiAnn.
