Personal Information

Even after all these years, I continue to feel very lucky to be part of the AGBU family.  This is truly where I was meant to be!

Teaching never "gets old" for me.  Every year, every week and every day is a new and welcome challenge.  But I DO try to not dwell on the fact that I am now teaching the children of the children I once taught!

Outside of school I spend time gardening, reading and doing 'crafty' things.  My husband and I very much enjoy being with our 2 adult children and their spouses.  Our 2 young granddaughters give me plenty of babysitting time!
