I can't believe that this is my eighteenth year at Cherry Tree. I am a graduate of Indiana University. I have taught both fourth and fifth grades. I have also been a substitute teacher and an instructional assistant for the Carmel Clay Schools prior to teaching.
I've been married to my husband Joe for 39 years. We met at IU. We have two children, Ryan and Abby. My son is married and lives in Lisle, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. They are parents to their twenty-one month old son, Connor and three month old daughter Danielle. My daughter lives in downtown Chicago and is a business consultant. Both children graduated from IU. We are true Hoosiers!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy visiting my children and grandchildren. Of course, every chance I get I love to be their babysitter. My husband and I like to travel, and we enjoy spending free time with good friends and relatives.
