I taught 1st - 5th grade math in Kitzmiller for seven years, then moved to kindergarten where I have remained doing what I love, teaching young students. I have been teaching a total of 22 years. I earned my AA degree at Garrett College and my Bachelors of Science & Master degrees from Frostburg State University. I have been happily married for 42 years and blessed with a daughter, two sons (and their spouses) and seven grandkids. We live and work on a dairy farm. I enjoy swimming, gardening, shopping, being outdoors, and spending time with family & friends.
