I have been working with children for 30 plus years and ran my own home daycare for 26 years.  I love being around children.  I love seeing the faces of children when we teach them something new and they can actually participate in what is being taught.  I love reading to children and playing games with them.  I especially love teaching young children new songs.

I attend Early Childhood Conferences whenever I can and I keep current in CPR/First Aid.  I have been married to my husband, Tom for 40 years and we have two wonderful children.  Tom and I have lived in Richmond all of our lives, loving this small city.  We are members of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Richmond.  I have two grandchildren, which keeps me very busy in my spare time.

After running my own home day care, I received a position as an aid for the preschool at Seasons of Learning, where I am currently working with the toddler’s in their program.  I love making baby quilts, reading, and working on puzzle books in my extra spare time.
