I was born in a small town in the east. I graduated from Allegany High School. I attended Towson State University and Allegany Community College before dropping out of college to get married. I married a fine man who was in the Air Force. While my husband was on a remote tour, I went back to college and continued with my secretarial studies. Upon his return, college once again was put on hold. After he got out of the Air Force, we moved back to our home town and I finally graduated from ACC Magna Cum Laude. I received three Associate Arts degrees. I went to work for the government as a secretary. We had three beautiful children, one girl and two boys. After the children were out of diapers I went back to college at Frostburg State University where I graduated with my B. S. degree in Business Education. My husband and I graduated on the same day. His majors were Early Childhood and Elementary Education.
Upon completing my degree, my husband and I moved to South Carolina to take teaching positions. We both are currently teaching at Paul Knox Middle School. I teach Computer Literacy. He teaches mathematics. I thouroughly enjoy teaching. My students are wonderful and always craving new knowledge. I love to see when the "light bulb" comes on, and they understand a new concept. I can't imagine doing anything else.
I also enjoy teaching childred at my church, The Bible Pentecostal Holiness Church. I help with the Hungry Hearts Ministry which serves children a balanced meal during the Wednesday evening service. Many children are sent to church hungry. I am also the coordinator for the Young At Heart Club. This is the senior citizen ministry at the church. Our motto is fun, food, and fellowship. I enjoy my Christian walk.
