I was born and raised, in Omaha Nebraska, spending many weekends on my Grandparent’s Farm. Around my house, I enjoyed playing in the snow, catching lightening bugs, playing sports, making forts, and playing pranks on the adults, with friends. This November, 2017, marks 18 years with the Vail School District, and Civano. My original plan, was to get a job with the District, so I could be on the same schedule as my children. Stephanie is 27, and Taylor, is 26. I soon realized, I loved working with children, and seeing them laugh, and actually, enjoying school. I never really enjoyed school, being the “class clown,” I was always getting into trouble with the Nuns, for my practical jokes. As I entered high school, it was more accepted, and appreciated, by teachers and my peers. Since I was 15, I’ve always had a job, only taking a few years off, after my children were born. My first, Mcdonalds. After 13 plus years, as a manager, I then became a Co-owner/operator of a Wienerschnitzel Franchise. I had many responsibilities, and tried to make the work place, fun. I believe there’s a time for work, and play. My hobbies are, watching crime shows, reading, relaxing, singing Karaoke, and cooking.
