“When you see someone put on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure an Adventure is going to happen.” A.A. Milne

I have been putting on my Big Boots at Barnesville for the last 20 years, enjoying all the 3rd grade adventures that come my way. After 35 years of teaching, I still love to explore and discover the wonders of the day with my students. Barnesville has been a special community for both me and my daughters, Elizabeth and Alexandra, who are proud graduates of Barnesville. I was even their teacher when they were in 3rd grade! When at home in downtown Frederick, I can be found spending time with my family and friends. I love to curl up with a good book as well as explore the great outdoors. Some of my favorites include cheering on the New York Yankees, watching a good movie, listening to live music, taking a good road trip, finding treasures in an antique store for my new home, and especially loving my two pups, Cam and Winnie.
