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.
