We have a “Dorkie” (Dachshund– Yorkie mix) named Ellie, a (very mischievous) cat named Oliver, and a dog who adopted us last summer, Betty.

Personal Information:

Teaching is my passion, but I have many other interests and hobbies. I also work as an online ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. I get to teach Chinese students to speak, read and write, and do math in English. It is an amazing experience!  Aside from this and spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, running outdoors, hoarding houseplants, and listening to my husband play music and sing. I enjoy old (as in from the 40s through the 80s) TV shows and movies, and I like to do jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, play board games, and do any type of word or trivia game I can find. I thrive on challenges, so I consider myself a lifelong learner!
