Here is a little bit about me!

*I am married to Michael. 

*I have three grown children:  Marissa, Douglas, and Kathryn. I also have two bonus children named Adam and Maddy.   

*I am a pet lover and currently have 11 pets. 

*I was a military brat who moved around a lot when I was little.  I was in the Air National Guard for 8 years.  I worked with the KC-135 refueler.

*I am beginning my 22nd year of teaching.  I taught Science at Summerville High School for 6.5 years, Science and Math at Mears Middle School in Anchorage, Alaska for 5 years, and Science and Math at Ashley Ridge High School for 6.5 years. This is my fourth year at Rollings.

*I love baseball and most sports.  My favorite baseball team is the Kansas City Royals. I am also an avid Kansas City Chiefs football fan!  Patrick Mahomes is a FANTASTIC quarterback and is a lot of fun to watch.

*My favorite hobby is attending concerts.  Live music ROCKS! 

*I am an athlete who has run several marathons, half marathons and have even competed in a triathlon!  I got injured in 2019 and have switched from running to biking.  That is a lot of fun.
