About me:  This will be my 24th  year teaching at Rogers.  I grew up in Massachusetts and attended Atlantic Union College and Fitchburg State College, where I earned a B.S. and M.Ed. in Elementary Education.  I love kids, reading, teaching and school!

My husband, David, teaches at Walla Walla University.  We have two sons:  Matthew, a structural engineer,  lives and works in Spokane; Jonathan works as a hospital controller in Southern California. 

I enjoy walking and bike riding, playing Scrabble, reading all kinds of books, making bread and pies, and eating chocolate!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 29:11-14
