"I have taught for 40 years! The 2017-18 school year is my 41st year. I have been at SVUMC Preschool for four years, going into my fifth. Fun fact about me: My best friend and I once tried out for the 'Wheel of Fortune' game show!"

"I graduated in 1988, since that time I have been teaching preschool. I have been teaching at SVUMC Preschool since November 2016. A fun fact about me is I like singing a lot, but when I sing I scare everyone! I know I have to improve on that! :-)"
