Since '74? New Trier High School '78, Colorado College (BA in Psych & Teaching License) '82, UCCS (MA in Teaching Reading) '89, U of Phoenix (Principal License) '05

Married in '83, twins in '92, third son in '94, divorced in '96. Met Bob in '97, married him in '99, blended our families - hardest work ever!

I've been teaching since '83 - elementary school then Literacy Resource Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, and now working at central administration as an Assessment Facilitator. Love the kids and teachers, hate the politics.

School Story:

Miss Feldman throwing erasers at the talkers in class (4th grade)

Miss Shane's "green" hair (5th grade)

Mr. Castle liked looking down girls' shirts

Mr. Timm caught me cheating on a science test!

Mr. Towner - what more can I say? He was my role-model.

Running for class president 24 years after my dad was class president at Central. "74 - a year to give more!" And Jock Rabinovitz: Be a supporter; Vote for Jock!"

The skating rink, chasing boys and grabbing their stocking caps, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass blasting from the warming house.

Sailing dad's sunfish at Glencoe Beach; smoking cigarettes on the boat and getting "sea" sick.

31, Big Al's, Triangle Park & 4th of July, working at Rehn's Pharmacy, watching Exorcist with Ellen Moore and getting caught by my sister.

Washington D.C. - staying up all night, feeling like I was hallucinating at the US Mint 'cuz I was so tired, thinking Mr. Hamilton was sooo cool!

There's probably more I'll remember, but I'm boring you...
