Retired 3/1/13 after 30 years as an educator (literacy teacher, new teacher coach, reading specialist). I have 3 grown children and 4 feline babies. My husband and I have been married 36 years. I enjoy quilting, knitting, gardening, reading, and walking. I completed my first 5K in 2012 and hope to do others in retirement. I live in Maryland about 25 min. from Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
