Family: I enjoy spending time with my husband and family. Some of our favorite activities include fishing, swimming, and other outdoor activities. We also enjoy spending time serving in our local church.

Favorite Books: I like reading inspirational books. My favorite children's stories are Dr. Seuss books.

Favorite Thing about Teaching: My favorite thing about teaching is seeing how excited a child gets when he / she learns new things.

In my teen years, I began to work with children at my church, and I realized it was very rewarding. At this time, I became aware that a teaching career was in my future.

Other things I enjoy are playing the piano and shopping.
