I have been a second grade teacher for many years...first at Zahnow Elementary School and then at Rogers Elementary School. I have both my bachelors degree and master degree from SIU in Edwardsville. I have been happily married to Bob for more than 37 years. We have three grown children who we are very proud of and four beautiful grandchildren. Gracey, my yorkie dog, has been my constant companion for over 13 years. We have lived in Waterloo for over 20 years. I love to read, ride my bike, travel, and spend time with my family. It was my childhood dream to be a second grade teacher. My dream came true! I love to teach children!
