I am so excited to be starting my 33rd year of teaching here at Verona Elementary School. It will be my 35th year of teaching!!! 
                Here are just a few tidbits about me so you'll feel like you know something about me!
       -I am a graduate of JMU and learned to love the Shenandoah Valley while a student there.
       -I am married to Frank who is a manager at the Best Buy Distribution Center.
       -I have two adult children:  Briana who is a social worker in Pennsylvania and David who recently married and lives in Maryland.  I also have 3 stepsons who live in Fredericksburg and 2 adorable step-grandsons!  (I'm adjusting to being an "empty-nester"). I LOVE spending time with my family!
       -I have a spoiled beagle named " Daisy."
       -I love gardening, decorating, traveling, music (especially the "oldies"), shopping, reading and crafting.  Needless to say, I also love teaching! 
          Please feel free to call me at 248-0141 or e-mail me if you ever have any questions or concerns.  I want everyone to feel great about 2nd grade!
