in apron with eggs I am Sheryl-lyn (sewgirlie) from Long Island, New York.  I am married to a great man and have two children who are both in their twenties.  We are a close family and spend a lot of time together!

I am an English teacher, and I totally love my job and the kids I teach.  This year is an especially good one with kids who are working hard and respectful. 

Most of my free time is spent at home sewing, reading or cooking.  I travel a lot and hope to eventually get a cabin in the woods upstate for us to use as a hunting/fishing camp for weekends.  Then maybe we can retire there someday. 

Some of the things I think about a lot are the suffering in other countries and how I can contribute in a positive way to my own town and community.  It’s still pretty small-townish where I am, even though there is a lot to do and see here.  I teach my students about being public servants and to make a difference, no matter how small.  And they do.

 I am thrilled to be in this group and I look forward to sewing, cooking and talking with you all as we move into our henhouse.
