This is my ninth year of teaching English III-American Literature at Allen High School. I am originally from New Jersey where I graduated from Rutgers College. I moved to Dallas in 1984. After enjoying a multi-faceted career as a Financial Analyst and then as a Stay-At-Home Mom, I completed my English Texas Teaching Certification at The University of Texas at Dallas. My husband, Richard, and I love to travel and have had the privilege of visiting many places around the country and around the world. We are enjoying being Empty Nesters. Our son, Matthew, is a student at The University of Texas at Austin, and Alex is a student at The University of Kansas (KU).
