Hello! I was born in Lafayette, Louisiana. My parents and older brothers did not speak English. They spoke only French. As a Matter of fact, My Maiden name was D'Aigle which means The Eagle in French. As a child I grew up immersed in the French music, food and culture.
I was in the Air Force as a young woman and helped to launch missiles for the Western Testing Range at Vandenberg, California.
I thought I wanted to teach high school chemistry, but found my love to be in the elementary schools especially with third and fourth grade students. A trivia fact is that I have given the SOL test to a group of kids every year since the very first one!
