Fun Facts about Ms. Klein:

Fun fact #1: I have been teaching English Language Arts at Edison since 1996. That is a long time--you can tell I really love it! My favorite part about teaching is supporting and encouraging you and seeing you reach for your goals.


Fun fact #2: I live so close to Edison that I almost always walk to work.


Fun fact #3: When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, hiking, and camping. You'll know I'm happy if you find me reading in a hammock at a campsite after a morning hike!
