I love to teach - so I have been teaching in some capacity since 1979 - yes, a long time! The majority of my teaching has been at the college level, and I still teach a class at Centralia College every now and then.  But I have also taught in Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine.

My other love is music - I play piano, sing, and lead worship for our church.  I have sung on the radio, TV, and in live concerts.  I even had the opportunity to record an album (okay- cassette tape-that dates me!) back in 1989.

Actually, I have many loves - including clowning.  As "Mrs. Pockets", I have participated in the Pe Ell 4th of July parade, the Christmas parade in Chehalis, and the 4th of July parade in Kent, Washington.

Of course, I also enjoy camping, fishing, boating, gardening, scrapbooking, being with family - the list goes on and on because I like to stay busy!
