I taught 1 year 8th Grade Social Studies at Mtn View-Liberty High School then went into banking for several years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. My husband works in finance, we have two boys, ages 15 and 10, and a Springer Spaniel. I love to travel, watch baseball, and grill outside. My youngest son was in the Republic ECSE program for 2.5 years, when he went to Kindergarten I began substituting in Republic Schools and after a few times subbing at EC, I discovered my calling. I then became a paraprofessional at EC for 1 year and a teacher the following year. I am beginning my 5th year at EC.
