My name is Teresa Coppens. I grew up in Southwestern Ontario and now live near Peterborough, Ontario Canada with my husband and three football-playing teenage sons. I worked for many years as a science teacher in Toronto Ontario and now am an Occasional Teacher working in the local school board. Having a son with a diagnosed learning disability, I became involved with our local learning disabilities association. I have been a Board Member of the Learning Disabilities Association of Peterborough since 2006 and now serve as their Secretary. My family and I live on nearly 100 acres of the Oak Ridge Moraine. Our hobby farm includes horses, chickens, several cats and of course our rambunctious dogs Rosco and Tuck. I love teaching, especially biological sciences and Environmental Science, but creative writing has also been a passion and lately I've developed an interest in jewelry-making.
