I consider my family to be an extremely important aspect of my life. In March of 2012, I married my husband, John Scott. He moved here from Scotland in 2008 to pursue his academic and athletic goals.Yes, he is actually 7 feet tall! It can be helpful in crowds. We do not have any children, other than our cats, Samson, Avery, Lulu, and Clyde. I have a strong connection with animals and have been a vegetarian for about six years now.
It's very hard for me to choose a favorite between cats, reading, running, and cooking-after family, of course. When I’m not teaching or discovering new resources for my classroom, you can find me swimming laps at the pool, running 5Ks with my friends, riding my mountain bike on nature trails, finding live music to experience with my husband and friends, burying my nose in a great book, photographing animals, or snuggling up with my cats.
