I am a creative and innovative woman who loves to read, dance, debate politics, write poetry and short stories. I love art, the theater and still feel we can all make a difference in this world. I must admit, I have a secret passion for William Shakespeare and Jane Austen! I was an actress in my youth, but the truth is, I am rather shy on a one-to-one basis. I teach elementary school and try to daily enrich and motivate my students to develop a love of art, music, literature and to help save the planet.
