Who are you? 

What led you to education?

My mom was a teacher and I grew up seeing the impact she made on so many lives.

What do you have a knack for? How did you find that out?

I have a knack for laughing.  I laugh a lot... loudly.

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?

I am passionate about my kids, both my biological kids and my student-kids.  I really enjoy seeing all kids learn and grow.  I also love to see kids smile or laugh. 

Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?

My typical Saturday/ Sunday- you would find me taking long walks along the beach with a fine wine.  Just kidding, you would find me going to my children's sports/ activities, going on a run or to work out, then crashing on the couch with my husband to watch Game of Thrones (or whatever other Netflix binge we are currently on).

What would be impossible for you to give up?

I grew up Catholic.  That means I had to face this question and unfortunate answer every. single. lent. 
It is impossible for me to give up chocolate, popcorn, potato chips, wine, beer and swearing for any extremely long period of time.
