I live in Copley, Ohio with my two dogs and my daughter's Siamese devil cat. I have 2 children: an adult son with special needs and a daughter attending The Ohio State University in the Art Education Program. I attended Mount Union College because I grew up in Alliance and my father taught there, and I double majored in Spanish and English. I have traveled to Bolivia, Peru, Puerto Rico, the British Isles, France, Germany, Canada, and many parts of the United States. I enjoy camping, live music, dancing, landscaping, and spending time with family and friends. I believe that all students can learn, if provided the right environment and tools. I strive to make Spanish accessible to all students, regardless of background or ability.
