About Me:   I was born in Florida but as a Navy brat grew up on both coasts.  I worked as an architect after college.  Through a chance situation to help out at St. Joseph School in Medford, I learned that I was happier teaching middle school students and so earned my certification for math and science about 10 years ago.  My husband and I enjoy exploring cities, significant buildings, and hiking trails.

Education:   Batchelor of Design and Master of Arts in Architecture – University of Florida

Master of Education- Cambridge College

Memorable Teaching Moment: The reaction of a student from China after reading the various passages from the Old Testament that I had assigned for the non-Christians in the class to help them understand our need for a Savior:  Why don’t they stop making the same mistake?
