    BIOGRAPHY
    I feel so blessed to have a job I love, a wonderful husband of 37 years, and adult children who make me so proud!
    I taught for three years before my children were born.  Then I stayed home with my children - these years made me a much better teacher.  I then taught in a private school in Rhode Island for five years.  We moved to Missouri and I did volunteer work for several years before returning to the classroom.  I now have lots of time,love, and attention to give to your children.  It is a great privilege to teach in such a wonderful school with so many terrific educators and students!
