My career path has always led to being a teacher. I was a middle school math teacher for 30 years, 10 years in Hastings, and 20 years in Lincoln. In addition, for nine years while our two boys were young, I worked as a volunteer coordinator for the Crisis Center in Grand Island, an instructor of adults at Central Community College and as a director of religious education at our church. When we moved to Lincoln, I taught primarily at East and Lux Middle Schools.  I, also, had a six-year stint away from the classroom, by being the President of the Lincoln Education Association.

After retiring from the Lincoln Public Schools, I was an adjunct mathematics professor for Kaplan and Strayer Universities.

Since my second retirement, I have been president of Friendship Force of Lincoln and a journey coordinator for both inbound and outbound journeys.

In my spare time, I take classes in watercolor painting, travel to visit our two sons and their families, read, garden, and play mahjong. I am also an officer (treasurer) in the Nebraska State Education Association-Retired.
