I love school and my family. I have two dogs and they keep me pretty busy, and so does my homework! My dad doesn’t live with us, so it’s just my mom and me.

Emily can be very particular about things, and is always busy with something. I try to get her to focus on some of the more important parts of life, but her father and I are just so busy, too.

As the narrator, I am the master storyteller! It's up to me to keep the story alive and interesting with each exciting detail.

I am a 6th grade teacher. I like order, but sixth graders seem to have a knack for creating disorder. Oh well, I guess its all part of the job.
