The owner and creator of Middle School Novel Units is a middle school language arts teacher who was born to teach! My love of learning and my dream to teach began in 1971 on my first day of kindergarten. I grew up "playing school" every weekend in my grandma's basement. My desire to teach never wavered through the years and finally became a reality with encouragement of my husband to attend college during the years that I stayed at home raising our 4 children. I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2005 and have been happily teaching ever since. Through teaching, I discovered a love of writing curriculum. I wrote my first complete novel unit in 2008. Middle School Novel Units Inc. has been in business since June of 2011. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in need of a unit for a particular novel. Time permitting, I will create it for you. I do most of my creative work on units during the summer as I have little time during the school year, preferring to devote my time to my classes.
