Tell me three of your favorite things. A cup of hot tea, curled up in a blanket in front of a fire on a no-travel-advised, snowy and blustery day, and spending time with true friends. All of these together is a special treat.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about? I teach swimming lessons and have been since I was 18-years-old. Also, I like to sell things and  have been involved in garage sales for a few decades. I love to research new places, which helps me to plan our family trips each year.

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you go? If I could travel anywhere other than here, right this minute, I would travel to Hawaii. It would be my last state to visit in the United States.

What’s a goal you have for yourself that you want to accomplish in the next year? My goal for this next year is to continue building the middle school library with my talented colleagues.
