I grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, in the Pocono Mountains. I graduated from East Stroudsburg High School and Muhlenberg College. My husband, Corey, and I moved to Ohio in 1980 and found our new roots in Hudson. We have four children, Elizabeth, Michael, Steven, and Susan, all members of the "13 year club" of Hudson. I completed my masters degree in Instructional Technology at Kent State in 2002. At that time, I was teaching Geometry and Advanced Algebra. I now teach five sections of Honors Precalculus.
