I have been teaching preschool children for 12 years and the Chesterton United Methodist Church Preschool Director for 9 of those years. Prior to coming to CUMC , I taught 1st grade for 6 years and 7th grade for 7 years in Illinois. My husband Dennis works in Chicago and we have two boys James and Daniel. I discovered CUMC in 2003 volunteering with the Mom's Morning Out program my youngest son, Daniel was attending. Each preschool child becomes as special to me as my own.
I hold them, wipe their tears, praise and laugh with them. When not with the preschool children, I am on the road traveling, enjoying my family, and perhaps at a Notre Dame baseball game.
