I have been meaning to start a blog for a long time, but somehow, life just kept getting in the way.  

First, let me begin by introducing myself. I am the owner and creator of Middle School Novel Units Inc. I am an English teacher who was born to teach! In addition to teaching English, I am also certified to teach math for grades 5 to 9. My love of learning and my dream to teach began in 1971 when I started kindergarten.

I grew up “playing school” every weekend in my grandma’s basement and my desire to teach never wavered through the years and finally became a reality when my husband encouraged me to attend college during the years I stayed at home raising our 4 children.  

Through teaching, I discovered a love of writing curriculum. I wrote my first complete novel unit in 2008 and now have more than 200+ novel units in my store on the Teacher Pay Teachers website. Within the past year, I have gotten my mom involved in the business. You will find links to both of our sites on this page.  She specializes in book units for grades 1-4 and I specialize in novel units for grades 4-8+.

Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of a unit for a particular novel and, time permitting, I will create it for you. Of course, I do most of my creative work on units during the summer as I have little time during the school year. However, I have been known to take time out on the weekend to create a unit if requested to by a customer!
