Little Known Facts about Me
I have two sisters and one brother who inspire me daily!
My sisters are also teachers.
My older sister has her PhD and teaches ESL in the Dominican Republic.
My younger sister is working on her PhD and teaches at a college on the northernmost Hawaiian island named Kauai.
My big brother is an incredibly talented artisan living in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
I am a morning person!
I can be happily awake and busy by 4:00 every morning of the week...
but am almost completely "shut down" by about 9:00 every evening!
...and who wakes up by 4:00 every morning and doesn't love coffee?! :)
I have been a vegetarian for over 45 years... Or better said, "One who eats NO beef, poultry, or pork".
There is not a single vegetable or fruit I don't love.... but, I can also easily make a meal out of chips and salsa! :)
I love being a mom! I love being a teacher! I love being a friend!
