Jennifer Shoaf has been a high school English teacher twenty years and counting. She is conquering Chicago suburban living with her mathematician husband, three daughters, three cats, and one snake. And by conquering, she means "getting along well enough." Diagnosed with ADHD at age 38, she is learning how to re-see her past and to create new techniques and systems to keep exercising, organizing, teaching, mothering, and "wife-ing" interesting enough to hold her ever-shifting attention and need for novelty.
