"Deanna is my name. English Education is my game. And it goes on like Monopoly. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful children, two dogs, and sanity enough to find time for reading, writing, flower arranging, dancing, etc, etc. I knew I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in third grade, even though I had a teacher who slapped my hands with a ruler if I used them to keep my place as I read. I have recently learned that it is useful to use your hands to improve reading speed. Ironic?"
