Personal Information:

There are several things I enjoy outside of teaching. I love playing the piano, especially at my church and for my family. I also enjoy reading (mainly Christian novels). I always look forward to Springtime, so I can plant flowers and work in my yard. One of my greatest pleasures is spending time with my grandchildren playing games, playing outside, crafting, and vacationing together. Lastly, and very important, spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I look forward to vacationing together and with family and friends more and more every year.
