All things nerdy. I love reading, sci-fi, board games, and of course the hottest new technologies.
Any pets? Names/types:
Two all black cats. Maddie is a grouchy old lady and Jester is a young rambunctious boy. They are quite the pair!
What is the one thing you couldn’t teach without?
Technology! Technology impacts every aspect of my life and the lives of my students. If I was unable to embrace that, I wouldn’t be nearly as successful in the classroom.
What is your favorite thing about your career?
Teaching is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. Each day presents its own challenges and successes; it’s never boring!
What is one of your life goals?
My husband and I love to visit minor league baseball parks. We hope to eventually visit them all.
What is your favorite vacation spot or where you dream of vacationing?
I love to camp! A nice flat spot in a campground, with plenty of shade for during the day and near a stream or river so you can fall asleep to the sounds of rushing water. Heaven.
