Semi retired.  I worked full time for 37 years teaching French and English in Columbus City Schools and then I worked part time for 3 years teaching French at Bishop Ready High School and 1 year part time teaching French for Worthington City Schools. I now enjoy substitute teaching and working part time at Walt Disney World's ESPN Sports Complex as a Food and Beverage Hostess during the winter months when we live as snow birds in  the Orlando area.

Places Lived

Wapakoneta,  Bowling Green, Columbus, and Lakeview, Ohio and Clermont, Florida.

Hobbies

Traveling, sightseeing, swimming, reading and spending time with our grandchildren.

Fondest memory

My earliest memories of school include the great feeling when Sister Ambrosine and other religious would reward  us with little holy cards as prizes for having done our school work correctly.  I so loved learning and the education that our parents and teachers gave us, that in high school I couldn't imagine life without learning and schools, so I headed off  to the university determined to be a Spanish and English teacher.  My goals grew as I did but I am still indebted to the Catholic school systems that our parents and the religious supported as I continue to love to learn on a daily basis. 

Your life

My personal accomplishment was organizing school exchanges for my French students to enable them to learn about France and its culture by living with French families, attending French schools and then hosting their French exchange partners in their homes in Columbus.  We collaboratively worked on establishing positive international relations on a personal level through our French /American School Exchanges.    It was even more meaningful to see my own two children attend the high school where I taught and be able to see their progress as they prepared for their futures.  Now my happiest moments revolve around gatherings with family and friends both in Ohio and when we are wintering in Florida.  If you are at the Lake or in Orlando, please let us know so that we may visit with you as well.
