I graduated from Sterling College in Sterling, Kansas, in 1994. I have been teaching for a total of 16 years. Seven of those 16 have been in middle school. I have taught in public and private schools, urban and rural, and have also homeschooled for three years.
My husband and I have been married for nearly 20 years and have four children. Two of those four children, I have been a full time stepmom to as they grew up, and the other two are ours biologically. We have two girls and two boys. Our children are now ages 25, 22, 18, and 17. Our 22 year old son just finished four years in the Marine Corps. He is married, and he and his wife are expecting our first grand baby in September of this year! Our youngest son has just entered his senior year in high school.
I grew up in Denver, Colorado....so, YES, I am a BIG BRONCO fan!!! I have retired my classroom Peyton Manning poster, but I WILL be talking about my BRONCOS whether it is a good season or not. The 50th Super Bowl victory will carry me through any challenging seasons ahead!
