What words best describe you?
Happy and determined.

This is my 7th year as a classroom teacher, but I student taught in the 4/5s before that.  While in college, I worked in a veterinarian’s office part-time which I loved!  I learned so much.  I couldn’t tell you how many puppies and kittens I got to hold.

A singer or an actress.
 
What is your ideal vacation? 
Spending a week at the beach or a weekend at the river.

Though I take a lot of pictures, I would love to get better at it!  I hope to take a photography class someday.
 
What else do you want people to know?
If you ever see me sporting my Blues attire at school, you know it is game day and I am going!  LGB!
