  • I met my husband through my job! My father-in-law's electrical company did the wiring in the new addition of our school. They came to do a service call during the summer and I happened to go to my classroom to set up while they were in there. My hubby and I were set up on a date...and you can guess the rest of the story! :)
  • I grew up in Oklahoma
  • I have played the piano since I was 7. I still LOVE to play! I have this AMAZING digital piano so I can record different instrument sounds and record it all onto a USB drive...soooo fun! 
  • I am also a singer...I was in a few choirs in middle school/high school and sang a lot in church growing up. We sing LOTS in my classroom!
  • I went on a service trip to Guatemala for 6 weeks in 2007. AWESOME experience!!
  • My husband a freaking AWESOME bagpipe player (he's been playing since he was 13) and comes and plays at school for the 1st graders when he can :)
  • I played softball growing up. My husband played baseball. We love to go play catch together!
