This is my 22nd year teaching, 19 of which has been in Theatre Arts. I began my love affair with theatre at the same age as many of my students, with my first role in seventh grade. From there I was hooked, participating in high school, college, and community theatre. I have an Associate of Arts Degree in Radio/Television, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication with a minor in Theatre. Prior to teaching, I worked for many years in radio as an on-air talent, and was also a 911 operator/police dispatcher, all before returning to my first love, education and theatre. It seems than no matter the job, I've always had audience! My husband, John, and I will celebrate our 20th anniversary in July. I have two wonderful step children, an amazing granddaughter, and six furry babies. I live a truly blessed life!
