I am a fifth generation educator. My father was a college literature professor and the greatest storyteller I’ve known. He took us from Grand Junction, Colorado where I was born, to Idaho, Minnesota, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee as he taught and studied. When I entered 6th grade, we moved to Oxford, Mississippi. I later met my husband while attending college there. In college, my mother created a gourmet deli and gift shop. I spent many, many hours preparing delicious food. I began catering during that time. My husband and I moved to Birmingham, Alabama and then to Memphis, Tennessee before we moved to Taos, New Mexico. We lived in the mountains of Taos, NM for 15 years. We helped to build an earthship in which we lived for 5 years. We had 11 milk goats and 42 chickens as well as a large garden, full of yummy beets and carrots. I still love to grow food and prepare it. I love working with my hands, creating art and craft. I love to be in mountains. I love animals. I love to learn.I have been teaching for 25 years, licensed in Tennessee and New Mexico. I have been teaching using Waldorf methods for more than 8 years. I have been married for 33 years and have one amazing child. We share our home with two sweet, small terriers and one large orange cat.My father’s brother lives in Provo with his wife. I have cousins scattered in the West. My sister and her family live in Arizona. My brother lives in Poland and my mother lives in Minnesota.We are thrilled to be joining Wasatch Waldorf Charter School. We look forward to exploring Utah again and in greater detail than we have before.
