I love to read, write, and be creative. I have been married for almost 34 years and am the mother of two boys who are now grown and living on their own. I work in an elementary school and have been tutoring struggling second, third, fourth, and fifth grade students in Reading for over twenty years. Besides teaching, I also enjoy making Power Point presentations and slide shows for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, graduations, anniversaries and retirement parties. I am the go to person for such projects both at home and school. Over the past year, I have been writing a children's book designed to inspire the struggling readers that I work with every day. I hope to someday have it published so that I can show my students that all things are possible if you are willing to put forth the effort and the time. At home, I have a passion for decorating and delight in making my home feel both stylish and comfortable. I am the happiest when my creative juices are flowing.
