About    

I am a transplanted Illinoisan.  After 30 years of serving in public and private schools as a library/media specialist and sometimes social studies teacher, I gave up cold weather and snow for sunshine and ocean breezes.  It was not a hard choice.  Now retired, I am focusing on the favorite part of my former career:  storytelling.  I am also relearning more about my favorite hobbies: photography and graphic arts.
