Hello fellow classmates!
My name is Amy, and I live in Anchorage, working full time with English language learners in the school district while earning a teaching certificate.
I love to read, making daily use of my Kindle. I just finished Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. I enjoy the subtle ways she has of crafting her plots, barely hinting of what’s to come. I also enjoy another Canadian, Alice Munro, and am currently reading The View from Castle Rock. I have a large number of favorite authors, Victor Hugo, Alexander Dumas, Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Louis de Bernieres, Barbara Kingsolver, Amy Tan, George Orwell, Sena Jeter Naslund, some, but not all Ken Follet, and the list goes on. Ask me next week and I’ll have a different list. My pets, a cat and a dog, don’t understand when I’m at the computer working on a class, so they become very demanding, the cat prancing back & forth in front of the screen, leaping onto my neck, nestling on the keyboard, or velcroing herself to my shirt with her claws, and the dog whining at my feet.
I enjoy gardening, hiking, bicycling, and fishing, anything that has to do with the outdoors.
