       I have lived in Valparaiso since graduating from Valparaiso University. After the birth of my daughter, Beth, I started teaching at River Forest Elementary School in Hobart.  I taught fourth grade.   I left teaching to help my husband start his own business.  After five years I began substitute teaching at Union Center. I was blessed with two more children, Justin and Kaycia, and became part of the UCE teaching staff.  I have taught a variety of grades including second, transitional k-1, first, third, and fourth grades.
