I have been teaching 6th grade reading at Metro Catholic School for many years. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, movies, reading, swimming, porch sitting, my flower and vegetable gardens, and meeting new people. Since I recently retired, I look forward to doing more of the above!
Since I enjoy dining out I can offer you several great restaurants, pubs, and ice cream shops in the neighborhood.
