I live in Central Illinois with my husband. My educational backround is in Library Science and Law Enforcement. I have a blended family which includes five grown children, four daughters and one son. I love to travel and I enjoy meeting new people. I love to read! I especially enjoy biographies and love stories. I also enjoy spending time researching new technology tools that can be used in and out of the classroom. I have three beautiful grandchildren that keep me busy in my spare time.
