About Me: Welcome to my page! A little about myself... I have been teaching in Columbiafor the past 29 years ... starting in fifth grade (for 10 years), then in fourth grade (for eighteen years), and now landing in THIRD grade! I have been married to my husband, Joe, for 26 years, and we have two children - Annie is a senior at Webster University in St. Louis and Patrick is a sophomore at Columbia High School. In my spare time (the little bit that I have) I enjoy walking my dog (Daisy) , reading, shopping, and cooking.
