  1. Briefly, what have you done personally or professionally since high school?
  2. After graduating from the University of Missouri I taught grades preK to grade 12 in Missouri, New Mexico, California and North Carolina. I also worked on the daily newspaper in Palo Alto, California.
    I retired when my first grandchild was born.

  3. How long have you lived in Raleigh/Cary/Durham?
  4. My husband and I have lived in Raleigh since 1971. My first teaching position here was in the Raleigh City Schools, prior to the city/county merger.

  5. What was your motivation for joining ALTA?
  6. When I visited the ALTA website at the suggestion of friends, I saw photographs of my first grade students receiving their OSB clothing bags. I was sold!

  7. Please, tell us something about you we may not know or something about you that is unique or unexpected.
  8. I grew up on Oahu, Hawaii and lived on a sugar plantation on the North Shore. My husband and I will be returning for a visit for our 50th wedding anniversary this spring. This will be my first trip back as many of my friends have moved to the Mainland. It was, and I hope still is, paradise.
