Greetings families,

A little overview of myself , I was born and raised here in aberdeen, SD. I have 9 siblings, 4 kids and 6 grandkids. I graduated from Central Highschool and went to NSU and Presentation colledge. I majored in Psychology,Sociology, Emergency Medical Tech with blood banking and  I have my Early Childhood certification. I love learning and teaching what I have learned;  I have worked with children birth through 18 years of age in some capacity or another. Such jobs as a JDC Detention officer, New Beginings center home counselor here in Aberdeen, daycare centers, special needs one on one aide, elementary school librarian, CPR educator for familes in the HeadStart program. I love helping everyone and I take strong commitment to my  preschool families that I work with. My husband of 33 years is full time National Guard and just completed  his 5th deployment and my son just returned as well from his 1st deployment. We have been a military family since 1987 we have lived overseas and in other states. I am very proud of them both. My daughter is getting married in October we are excited for that and our new Son in law named Jeff as well. Ha HA 3 Jeff's in our family. My other son works at Aberdeen flying service and bartends, my daughter is an insurance agent and our oldest son gained his angel wings shortly after birth. I think because of this life exsperience we understand how preciouse every child is. I want you to know that I am honored that you trust me with your most preciouse gift from God to me everyday. I am very open and approachable person , please know you can come to me with any questions or concearns anytime. I can't do this with out you and I want the best posative start to your childs academic/social and emotional future.

I enjoy church, family, friends and I love science, music and art. I enjoy reading to children and exsploring new adventures. I enjoy the beach and my flip flops! I enjoy crafts , photagraphy and Hobby Lobby! Oh and I love feeding people, decorating cakes and decorating for parties and events!

My favorite colors are most all of them but when the kids ask me I say blue or purple. My favorite food is PASTA! My favorite drinks are coke, hot coca and I love chocolate milk! and sometimes tea. 

I look forward to our journey together ; May the good Lord Bless you everyday.
