Family photoI have 3 grown children and they have blessed me with 8 grandchildren!  :)  Unfortunately, none of my grandchildren live close enough to attend Alpena Elementary, but I get to see them often! :)


Personal Information:

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family most of all!  I also love to read and listen to audio books.  I put out a small garden every year and I enjoy watching the birds visit my many bird feeders all year long :) Making crafts with my family is also a hobby of mine, especially for the holidays!
