What was one of your favorite memories at U-46? In 2011, the launching of the breakfast cart at SEHS. I chaired a collaborative committee of staff, students, administrators and community agencies who worked together to bring breakfast to our students by providing a roving cart that goes to the morning study hall classrooms. We increased breakfast participation by 300% in the first year!

What was the favorite part of your job? I loved working with all my students and seeing them grow. Also, to see the commitment of the teachers was so inspiring!

What do you enjoy doing outside your profession? Gardening, scrapbooking, crafts and traveling
