You can’t think without metaphors.”&nbsp; Lindsay Aromin surely has made good use of metaphors in her life.</p><p>Lindsay Aromin is an English teacher at North Smithfield High School, where each year her ninth grade students write their own “This I Believe” essays.&nbsp; Aromin has been a member of the Pawtucket and Providence Figure Skating Club for over twenty years.&nbsp; She also coaches private and group skating lessons in Pawtucket.</p><p> Wed, 13 Mar 2013 12:15:52 +0000 Lindsay Aromin 11850 at http://ripr.org
