    Special Interests:

    Teaching is the best job in the entire world; Everyday of work is so enjoyable. I also enjoy playing my Flute in Orchestra and Band settings. I love listening to the radio and singing along to all Country Music. I’m a little obsessed with my cowboy boots. I love drinking coffee in the morning. I can’t imagine not spending my summers under the redwood forest in small town of Cazadero, CA.  I believe everyone can find the sunshine in life’s lemons.
