wedding.jpgMy name is Laura McDaniel (formerly Laura Ewald.) I am 22 years old. I teach 6th grade English at a second year charter school in Red Hook, Brooklyn named Summit Academy.

School occupies my life from 7:30 am when my kids enter the building to 5 pm when they leave tutoring... and then of course the two-three hours of planning for my next unit, etc. after school. When I am not in school, however, I am a happily married woman to a man extremely different from myself. I couldn't imagine being married to anyone with as much emotion and with as little time as me! He is great- his name is David and my ideal day is simply doing something... anything... with him.

I moved out at age 15 to go to the University of Minnesota where I studies English and Ojibwe Language. Needless to say, school has always been a huge priority in my life. I am currently applying to PhD programs in the teaching of English. I write poetry. I used to write poetry.
