I live with my beloved husband, our two Labrador Retrievers, and some tropical fish. We have two Eagle Scout sons who both graduated from college in 2009. Hallelujah!
I'm a U.S. History teacher and I love my profession. I especially love teaching the Constitution. Most people think that I'm a bit crazy to enjoy teaching middle school students. I'm a National Board Certified Teacher and I also serve as my school's social studies department chairperson.
Other than American history and quilting, I love reading and music. My husband and I ring the tower bells at the Washington National Cathedral.
My avatar is a recent caricature done of me by a cartoon artist at a local comic store. I asked him to draw me as "Super Teacher!"
