    A Little About Me
     
    Welcome!   I have been a District resident for the past 32 years.  My husband has spent his life here in Cherry Creek; growing up on a dairy farm and graduating from Pine Valley.  We have been blessed with three grown children and three grandbabies.  We also have three furbabies.  This is my 27th year working at Pine Valley Elementary.  During that time, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing students and their families!  Some of my most memorable experiences have been running into former students locally and hearing about their achievements/success in life.  My husband and I love traveling, especially to the ocean (Emerald Isle, NC).  It has become our home away from home a few times a year. 
     
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns or if I can assist you in any manner!
