I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 43 years, and have 2 adult children who are both teachers. My daughter teaches with me at our small church school in Burnsville, MN. My husband, Alan, is a registered nurse who has also taught nursing. I have 2 music degrees and 2 educations degrees. I started out as a music teacher and switched to being an elementary teacher after 11 years. I have taught over 40 years, including having my own music studio. I also love to read, do Volkwalks, and have 2 dogs and 2 cats.
