It's hard to believe I have been teaching fourth grade at Watervliet for over 20 years! I have been married to my husband, Patrick, for 30 years. We have four children. Patrick is an auditor with the State Comptroller's office. Our daughter, Katie, was recently married and also works for the state. Our twins, Christopher and Kevin are both finishing their business degrees. Chris attends SUNY Albany, while Kevin is finishing his studies at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. I love to share stories about the crazy things my kids do, so get ready to hear about their adventures. I also have a great dog named Shep. He is a funny, smart dog, and I am sure you will hear lots of stories about him as well. In my free time, I enjoy running. I am also an avid reader. But most of all, I just enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
