Know Your Pelicans

What is your favorite thing about Packer?

The children! They always make me feel young and challenge me to grow with them.

Describe a favorite or memorable moment in your classroom at Packer.

There are simply too many memories over the 38 years to describe. It is enough to say that I am happy every day coming to work, and I am very fortunate to have chosen a field that brings me such pleasure. Every day, I get paid to play!

Name a book/artwork/piece of music that changed your life and explain how.

"Life is Precious" a song by Ruth Elaine Schram. I remember singing it with my Choral Group and it inspires me each time I hear it!

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

I love to sing! I am not claiming to have any talent — it just brings me joy.
