I am originally from New Jersey. I am a retired pre-school and music teacher. I am married for 44 years and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I love to travel and have been to Germany, Spain, France, Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Great Britain. Many of these countries, several times. I love classical music and history, and enjoy reading, cooking, learning foreign languages and shopping. I love children and continue to work with them on a part-time basis when I can.
