When I graduated from college, I started my teaching career at Cherryvale. I have twenty-four years of experience, and I am teaching fourth grade reading, writing and social studies. 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. My daughter-in -law is now a pharmacist. My daughter is a senior at USC majoring in psychology and hotel management. The only baby left at home is my English bulldog, Benson.
