Education and experience: Received bachelor''s and master''s degrees in elementary education from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Taught 22 years at Eastbrook Elementary before joining the staff of the new John Evans Elementary in 2000.
Reason for becoming a teacher: "I grew up in a modest, loving home with parents who inspired me to always do my best in school and respect and appreciate teachers for their lifelong gift of a good education. The teaching profession has always been my true calling."
Greatest moment as a teacher: "When former students and parents visit me to share kind words of appreciation."
Most embarrassing moment as a teacher: "I had a temporary front tooth in my mouth after dental work. It fell out in front of the children."
Favorite aspects of being a teacher: "Knowing my students love coming to school and are excited about learning. Their smiling, eager faces are my most tender reward."
Least favorite part of teaching: "Paperwork, reports, meetings, which take away time from our true task of educating children."
Favorite movies: Grease, Phenomenon and Michael (most John Travolta movies).
Last book you read: A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks.
Favorite hobbies: Grandchildren, travel, reading and music.
Family: Husband, Dave, who teaches at Lake Howell High; children, Dave and DeeDee; grandsons, Zachary and Hunter.
If you weren''t a teacher, what would you be and why? "I am very interested in writing children''s books and music. I enjoy creative, imaginative challenges."
Person you most admire and why: "I admire our first lady, Laura Bush. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, she has shown the world a calm, compassionate person of action and resolve. All of these are attributes of our teaching profession, and I am proud to consider Mrs. Bush as a colleague."
