Besides teaching, I have many other loves. First is my husband. We've been happily married for 21 years. He is my friend and my life. We have three beautiful children, two girls and a boy that range in age from 16 to 20. Two are in college and my youngest is a junior in highschool. We are truly blessed by our children. They have always made us proud and all three are very family-oriented (which, of course, I LOVE!). We have two dogs - a shihtoodle named Moose and a dachsund mix named Ember. Ember is completely deaf and our youngest daughter convinced us to rescue her. It has been an amazing experience for all of us.
