I have always loved working with children. I feel more comfortable with children than adults most of the time! I was able to enjoy being a stay-at-home mom with my 2 children, and I ran a home daycare from 1992-2002. I volunteered at my children's school regularly for several years, and finally decided to go back to college to become a teacher. I have been working as a Preschool (formerly called ExCITE) Family Educator at Roper Elementary since Fall 2008.
My family includes my husband of 26 years, Andrew, and our 2 children, Abigail, 21, and Elijah, 23. We currently have 1 dog, 9 hermit crabs and a Betta fish, which is our classroom pet.
I enjoy reading mysteries, historical fiction, and true stories. When I find time to watch TV, I love Survivor and Big Brother.
