Weather just excites me!!! It has from the time I was five years old and I wrote a report on tornadoes for my Kindergarten class. I especially love to study and learn about severe weather, such as tornadoes and hurricanes. I grew up in (and still LOVE) New Haven, CT. I went to College in Vermont and received my degree in Elementary Education. I then came back to CT, where I went to graduate school and received a Master's Degree in English Literature. I have been a fifth grade teacher for almost fourteen years. I now call North Haven home, where I live with my husband and my son, who is four, but already loves the weather. I am so excited to be a part of the WXteam!!
