What Brought You to LKS:  I retired from teaching ten years ago, when my twin sons were born.  With all three of my children now in school, I was ready to return to full-time work this summer.  I saw the teaching position posted and applied.  I knew as soon as I visited LKS that I wanted to be a part of this great community.  I’m so happy to be here!

Favorite Activities/Hobbies:  Running, trail running, cooking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Something Neat About Me:  I like to run on the Appalachian Trail.
