A LITTLE ABOUT ME!
MY HOMETOWN: I grew up on the Beach in Long Island, NY! I am officially a "BEACH GIRL"
MY EDUCATION: I attended Wagner College in Staten Island, NY and spent my Junior year in Bregenz, Austria!
MY CAREER: I started my professional career in Salt Lake City, Utah, where I taught fourth and first grades for five years.
MY ADVENTURES: After Utah, I took my teaching skills overseas for an adventure in Germany, working for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools on an Army base. After 7 years there, I returned to the United States choosing Vermont to raise my family. I spent the next several years running a preschool out of my home in Middlebury before beginning at Mary Hogan School.
OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: I have three grown children, all of whom live in Montana! My husband Paul has three children of his own and all together we make 8! Since starting our family we have added 7 grandchildren (so far!).
I have a Long-Haired Dog named Dixie who helps me in the garden. We love to travel and camp which inspired us to recently buy a camper. Our dream is to travel across the country in our new moving home! This new adventure will give me plenty of time for reading, kayaking, and spending time with the family that I love.
MY FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL WAS: The study of World Languages: Spanish & German
