When I graduated from college, I started my teaching career at Cherryvale. After twenty-two years of experience, I returned to Cherryvale to teach second and then third grade. This year I am teaching fourth grade reading, writing and social studies. I am thankful for the opportunity teach some of my students for the third straight year. My parents have been very supportive, and I know this year will be the best yet! I have been married 25 years to a farmer who farms corn, wheat, and soybeans. I have a son who graduated from USC and is now back home working on the farm. We are very excited that he will be marrying Christine in December.My daughter is a junior at USC majoring in psychology and hotel management . The only baby left at home is my English bulldog, Benson.
