I was raised in a Navy family and traveled around the United States while growing up. I settled in the beautiful city of Mobile in 1987 and have been here ever since. I am the proud parent of 4 children ~ two daughters and two sons. My oldest daughter, Lisa, lives here with her wonderful husband and their daughter and 2 sons, and practices medicine with an internal medicine group at Providence Hospital. My oldest son, Ben, is in the Army and is stationed at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. He and his wife have four precious little girls and a  baby boy. My third child, Kristen, is a pharmacist. She and her husband are living and working in northern Alabama and expecting their first child. My youngest son, Joe, is a medical resident at LSU Medical School in New Orleans. Spending time with my family is one of the joys of my life!

I have always loved learning and I believe strongly in the value of an excellent education. I am excited to be your child's reading and language arts teacher this year, and will do all in my power to help each child grow and find success this year in my room!
