Christina S. Sterling VA.
Humanities Teacher: 4th Grade through Adult

Then I got hired to write Literature class plans and suddenly there was no more "try." What happened next was stranger than fiction, but that's a story I'll save for later. For now, can you relate to my experience? Maybe they kee... Read more
