I love FACS!I have been blessed to meet many people during my long career with Warsaw Community Schools. It is my hope that my life's work has been enriching the lives of many people. I enjoy my pets (currently 2 cats and a dog). I love to travel and if I can find the time, my favorite hobbies are sewing knitting, and decorating cakes. I hold a BA degree from Manchester University and an MS degree from Purdue University. (I found it interesting to take courses at other universities and transferred credits from Kent State, Univ. of Minnesota, Ball State, and IPFW.) My latest adventure has been winning a 2013 Teacher Creativity Fellowship from the Lilly Endowment. For my project, I chose to travel to Scotland and attend kilt school in the town of Keith. 8 meters of tartan worsted wool fabric and many hand stitches later resulted in a kilt and an education in Scottish culture.
