Love languages! How is it that the human with the gift of gab, does not know how to COMMUNICATE AT ALL!!

I have been involved in education since my youngest child was 3, he is now 30 yrs. old. So its been 27 yrs!! I started as an early childhood educator then became interested in working with middle school then eventually high school. They are the ones who keep me young! I am also an adult educator by night.

This school year I was fortunate enough to be chosen to participate in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Mentor Teacher Fellowship for the 2019-2020 school year. Holocaust education is my favorite subject. Children must be taught that HATE IS NOT O.K.!! Aside from teaching I have taken students to trips overseas. We have been to France, Spain, Italy, Greece and this summer visited Ireland and London! Next summer (June 2019) we will be visiting Costa Rica. The plan for 2021 is to visit Germany and the camps used during the Holocaust. Parents are more than welcomed to become involved in these trips. See me for information.

I have a son and a daughter and each have 2 children, four grandbabies in total which I adore with all my heart. I love baking, water sports, and most of all being a teacher!
