Interests/hobbies/talents (inside or outside of academia):
I love to be creative, make things. I am happiest when I am working on a craft project, reading or cooking.

My dog, Ruby, is a great source of laughter in my daily life.

Favorite app:
OverDrive, it allows me to borrow an ebook from the library. I always have at least one book on my virtual bookshelf to read.

What is the one thing you couldn’t teach without?
While it would be difficult for me to teach without my laptop, it would be even harder to teach without my binders. I keep myself organized with binders for each class. I keep a hard copy of each lesson in case technology fails me.

What is your favorite thing about your career?
My students are my favorite part of my job. They challenge me, entertain me and teach me everyday.

If you weren’t a teacher, what would you do?
I would be a Nanny. I love children, mine are grown, it would be a fun way to start over without having more of my own.

What is your favorite vacation spot or where you dream of vacationing?
I would like to take my husband to Munich, Germany. While we were dating, I lived there and I would like to show him what I experienced.
