    When I am not teaching, I enjoy the company of my husband John and my daughters Lily and Shannon. As a family we love to travel and go to the beach.  You may often hear me speak about my husband's involvement with the United States Air Force, Air National Guard, my daughter's involvement in water polo and dance, and another one of my favorite activities, gardening.
