This is my 21st year of teaching. I started as a 3rd grade teacher, then moved to kindergarten 15 years ago. I love how quickly kindergarteners change and learn. I have been married to my husband Mike for 35 years. We have 3 children. PJ is married to Kara, They live in Cleveland with their son Jack who was born in June, 2011, and are expecting another son in January. Andy lives in Columbus doing all kinds of handy man work. Kinzie lives at home and works in Galion as an LPN. She will earn her RN in the spring. I am an avid quilter and we are active in the community and at First Presbyterian Church.
