What was one of your favorite memories at U-46? Through the leadership of our resource teacher Calina Cina, we made a great team at Hanover Countryside Elementary, devoted to making a difference in our IEP students' education. This is the memory I will always carry with me when I think back on my career at U-46.

What do you enjoy doing outside your profession? I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, family, and friends.
