    This is my 9th year teaching at Pershing, and I really love it.  I so enjoy teaching this age, the children are like little sponges, soaking up anything you present to them.  Their little faces and smiles warm my heart and make teaching so much fun!

    I have a degree in Early Education from SIU in Carbondale.  I grew up in Southern Illinois, having come to Decatur when I married 33 years ago.  My husband, Bob, and I have grown twins, Bethany and Ryan.  Bethany lives in Wheaton, IL with her husband and 3 little boys.  Ryan, who is a special needs person, lives in a group home in Forsyth.

    In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my grandchildren), reading, cross-stitch, and playing on my laptop.
