I am originally from Peoria, Illinois, but I lived in Florida for 20 years where I worked in the travel industry as a sales manager for a hotel and a tour company. About 12 years ago, we moved to Virginia to be near my husband’s family.
I graduated from Mary Baldwin College. My major was history, and I minored in Education.
Having previously taught in fifth and first grade classrooms, I feel that I have found my niche in fourth grade. I think it’s the BEST age, and I love my fourth graders.
When I’m not teaching or looking for fun things to do in the classroom, I love to sew or do other creative, crafty things. My other favorite pastime is reading, particularly historical fiction, or visiting historical places.
