About Me: I have been in Christian Education for 35+ years- in the regular classroom, music classroom and also administration. I adopted my daughter, Allison when I was teaching in Shanghai, China. My favorite things are spending time with my daughter, watching cooking and home improvement shows, our dogs – Biscuit, Kookie and Louis, our bunnies – Toby, Cinnabun and CoCo, a good rainy, cloudy day and most of all spending time with Jesus and the people of His church.
