    This will be my eleventh year of teaching. This is my sixth year teaching at Jerry Ross. I worked with students who have Emotional Disabilities for the first five years, four years at Timothy Ball and one in Lowell. I taught 5th grade at Jerry Ross for two years. This will be my 4th year working with the 3rd grade team.
     
    I have been married to my husband, Dale, for 38 years. He has worked at Arcelor Mittal for 37 years and also enjoys farming. 
     
    We have two children and five grandchildren. Our daughter, Mindy, is married to Roy and they have three boys! Zachary is thirteen, Adam is eleven, and Benjamin is nine. Our son, Brian, is married to Kerri and they have two daughters. Riley is ten and Hailey is eight.
     
    I was a high school gymnastics official for 27 years and coached Pop Warner Cheerleading for four years. I enjoy watching football, especially going to ALL of the Lowell Red Devil football game. I also enjoy NASCAR and INDY car racing. In October, I am going to get to ride in a race car. I am super excited!

    The summer of 2012, my husband and I traveled to Iceland to see my Icelandic sister. She was my family's foreign exchange student in 1973/1974, my senior year of highschool.

    I collect snowmen, angel, gingerbread, and sports ornaments for each of the trees I put up for Christmas.  I have started collecting a variety of hats and I love wearing different holiday socks.
    I love getting together with my family for a variety of events: camping, fishing, holidays, church, baking, or just hanging out together.

        My first sprint triathlon four summers ago. I have completed 5 and plan to keep going as long as I can.
