Teaching at SU is my dream job – plain and simple. I taught at two very large schools, and what I found most frustrating was that I would only get to know about 10% of my students. The thing I like best about SU is the culture of interaction, and getting to know my students both in and out of the classroom.
I have two beautiful daughters and a wonderful husband (but I’m not biased). We enjoy spending time working on our house and our yard, as well as participating in our daughters’ activities. During the summer, we spend as much time as we can on the water. I also enjoy reading, knitting and quilting.
