I have been married to a wonderful family man since 04/26/1986, I am a mother of three fine young men, and proud Grandmother of one beautiful angel. Two of my children were born with severe to profound sensorineural deafness.  As an advocate for the deaf community I am well versed in ASL. I am a Paraprofessional in the Jefferson County, West Virginia Public School System.  Currently  I am employed at Wright Denny Intermediate School where I maintain  the school's Webpage and monitor the Computer Lab. I have earned my WV State Paraprofessional Certificate, completed credits towards Braille Specialist, and towards  autism mentoring. In 2014 I was awarded an Honorary Life Time membership into the F.F.A. from the Charles Town Middle School Chapter. In the spring of 2015 I was awarded Service Personnel of the Year for Jefferson County Schools. I am a Board member of The Kidlink Association. The Kidlink Association supports and governs the The Kidlink Project.  Since 1990 The Kidlink Project has provided teachers and students a platform for collaborative educational projects.
