It is my pleasure to begin my 26th year in middle school!!!  I truly believe teaching is a calling, and I love the
opportunity to watch young minds expand and develop!!  
I have been married to the love of my life for the last twenty-two years, and we have two amazing children!!!! Our daughter, Mary Beth, 
starts her second year at Lee this year. Our son, JimBo, is a freshman at Walker Valley.
I will again be sponsoring the OMS yearbook, and I enjoy spending a great deal of time at our church, North Cleveland Baptist.  My husband is a deacon, and I enjoy singing in the choir.
