I was born and raised in Topeka and have been a Trojan since 1967. My children were the fourth generation to graduate from Topeka High! I earned my BA in English from Kansas State University in 1976, and. although I lived in several other places, including the Philippines, I returned to Topeka in 1991. I have been an English teacher at T-High since 1993, and I have taught 16 different classes. I earned a Masters in Education from Friends University, in 2000. I have four children and six grandchildren. I love reading, writing, cooking, gardening, traveling, and shopping for antiques. My husband, George; cat, Clementine; dog, Giles; and I recently became country folk, and we are enjoying the peaceful setting.
