•    Hobbies/Special Interests

I have been passionate about education since I first became a volunteer teacher in 1996, long before I had children of my own. Since then, I have volunteered thousands of hours of teaching in all grades and all subjects. One of my favorite subjects to teach is art, since it is also a personal hobby of mine. I also love spending time with my two daughters, exercising outside, and reading books of all kinds.
