After 27 years of teaching science and coaching at middle school and high school levels I am exploring a different life path. I have always loved working with children and have taught swimming to younger children for many years. My passions also include most any outdoor activity including hiking, cycling, tide-pooling, jogging, ocean playing, dog cuddling, health and fitness, swings and slides, photographing nature, and seeing all the wild wonders through the eyes of children. I have organized and chaperoned several adventure student trips to Belize, Costa Rica, Kauai, Puerto Rico, France, Ecuador, Grand Canyon, and Yosemite - and experiencing the excitement and joy through the shared emotions of children. I am used to a life surrounded by and involving children. I'm an energetic, compassionate, empathetic, organized, clean, and caring mother of a 6-year-old.
