I am excited for the upcoming year as part the St. Christopher School family. I was born and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire. I graduated from Keene State College with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and English.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my spare time I like to cook, shop, and make crafts.

December Book Report

Due: Tuesday, December 20, 2016

For your 2nd book report, you will be making a book report diorama based on a chapter book on a chapter book of your choice (100+ pages). You will be creating your favorite scene from the book.

You will need a shoebox (or a box of similar size), paint, crayons, markers, construction paper for the background, and modeling clay or something of your choice for the characters. (You do not need to buy anything special for this, but can use items you already have at home).

Along with your diorama, you need to include a handwritten piece. Explain why this scene is your favorite. Please also tell us the title of your book, author, setting, main characters, and a brief summary of what the book is about. This should be between a half page to a full page. This can be attached to your diorama. Have fun and happy reading!
