Hellooooooo there SA 97! are always full of great ideas...but this whole 'blog' thing takes the cake! It is so great hearing about what everyone is up to! Congrats to all of you on the awesome jobs, marriages, kids etc....

I am pumped for the big 10 year reunion...where does the time go?

As for me.....2 weeks ago I tied to knot to awesomeeee Todd Palmer. It was the best day of my life! We got married at the Wequassett Inn on the Cape...and then had the most amazing honeymoon ever. BIG shout out to Mike Cirelli who was our photographer and SOOO awesome! If you are at work and looking to procrastinate, check out his work!

So.....I am back here in Hackensack, NJ!! I moved down to NJ 3 years ago to be closer to Todd.
I teach 8th grade science in Ridgewood, NJ....and I must say...there is nothing more fun than working with kids at the goofy age of 13. I also coach girls hoops at the high school, big surprise there eh?!

Looking forward to seeing all of you next month!!!


Whats up SA!

Well it sure has been a long time and it is really nice to hear what everyone has been up to. I want to congratulate Anne and Jane, having a family is very exciting. I have a two and a half year old daughter and I am 6 months pregnant with another one now. I also wont be able to make the reunion because I think I will be too far along in my pregnancy to travel. I have been married for almost 4 years and we have been living on Long Island and about a year ago we moved to a town called Merrick. It is on the south shore right by the beaches. Other than being a mom I have been trying to get my graduate degree in teaching high school biology. I still have another year until I can teach so I am almost there. I wish the reunion was at a different time because I really would have loved to go but I am happy to see and hear what everyone has been up to. If anyone happens to be on Long Island at any time let me know I would love to get together. Here is a picture of my little girl her name is Talia. Keep in touch.

Hello Everyone!

It is great to read the updates on everyone . I look forward to seeing those who are going to the reunion. It has been 10 years since I have been back at Suffield and I know a lot has changed.

I am currently in my last semester of graduate school studying Healthcare administration. I live in Hamilton, NY where I am from. To pay the bills, I work as a research assistant for a professor at Colgate University. Like Hetzel I have dedicated some of my time in Africa as well. I was a Peace Corp volunteer in Niger, West Africa from 2003-2005.

I hope all is well.
