    Occupation: I’m a teacher at Wallace Middle School in Middlebury, for eighth grade social studies. Never a dull moment! But that’s part of the fun. I’ve been a teacher for 11 years. I started life out as an attorney. I’m a lot happier now.

    Occupation: I call myself a stay-at-home mom, first of all. On the side, I am a professional blogger for MaryJanesFarm, at http://sfgblog.maryjanesfarm.org. I’m the Suburban Farmgirl. I write about gardening, cooking, and being a mom. Sometime I even write about Newtown, because that’s where I’m from.
