A little bit about me...
I won't bore everyone with the long harangue, but I'm a native Hoosier, born and raised in Valparaiso, a little college town that seemed to grow up overnight and is now a thriving community in the Chicagoland Megalopolis. After I received my Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Public Relations from Valparaiso University, I got my Master's Degree in Education from Indiana University. I have never actually taught in a K-12 classroom, as my focus was post-secondary administration and adult learning.
But I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once...
I may not have a teaching certificate, but I've worked with Adult Learners for almost 20 years and for almost 10 of those 20 specifically with educational software/hardware in the K-12 environment. Every day I learn something new and welcome the opportunity to continue to learn from all of you here at Greenwood.
Stuff I dig...
I enjoy riding with my hubby on our motorcycle (Yamaha FJR1300), Formula One, MotoGP and IndyCar racing, and I am both a Colts and Bears fan. You can take the girl out of Chicagoland, but you can't make her totally give up her Bears - except for when they play the Colts. I'm a pretty decent cook, I have an admittedly off-beat sense of humor, I love 70's television (I'm more of a Rhoda Morgenstern than a Mary Richards), and I support the Arts in Indianapolis.
Just in case anyone's curious...
I'm married and live on the West Side of Indianapolis in Pike Township. My husband works in Louisville during the week, so weekends are really special to me. I have two amazing step-daughters: Alyssa, my oldest, just celebrated her 1st Wedding Anniversary this summer and Kelsey, my youngest will be starting Graduate School at the IU School of Medicine. I am so incredibly proud of both girls!
I am a Life Member of the VFW Auxilliary and member of the American Legion Ladies Auxilliary. My Father was a Korean War Veteran and my brother is a retired Colonel in the US Army and served in Desert Storm in 1991. I am very proud of their service to our Country and thankful for ALL of our men and women who Serve.
