Tell us a little bit about yourself, your background, your interests, etc.

I was born in Madison, Wisconsin and lived in that area until 1978. After an extremely cold winter with several feet of snow, my husband Paul accepted a transfer to sunny Mississippi.


Do you have a favorite book? How about a favorite movie?

My favorite book is Heaven by Randy Alcorn. I enjoy almost all Hallmark movies.


If you could wake up in the morning and start a new adventure, what would it be?

Retirement


What is your favorite thing about teaching?

My favorite part of teaching is spending time with students while teaching them the concepts they need to know. Over the years, the kindness shown by students and watching many turn into successful adults brings happy memories


When your're not working, how do you spend your time?

When not teaching, I often spend time with my grandson, William or our son, Marv or daughter, Nicole.
