Where were you working when you retired, and what was your position?

.....retired from Chesterfield County Public Schools in Chesterfield, Virginia after over 31 years as an educator (in Virginia, Alief Texas and the Buffalo, New York area)

.....was a Title 1 Reading/Math and Reading Recovery Teacher; additionally I taught at-risk students, K-5, in a Before School program, tutored after school, and developed/presented workshops for parents/teachers at the local/state/national levels

What have you been doing since you retired?

Bob and I love to cruise......we have traveled to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, and the Panama Canal. One day we would like to cruise the Mediterranean and Baltic areas, and eventually return to Hawaii.

Volunteer work is my passion and I was quite active in our church and in the community before we moved to The Villages. Church activities included chairing the Mission Ministry team, teaching Sunday School, serving as a Stephen Minister, and organizing and/or leading several mission trips to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina; community activities included serving on the board of the Chesterfield Historical Society, giving guided tours of Magnolia Grange, working on the Chesterfield/Colonial Heights Christmas Mother committee, and mentoring through the Big Brother Big Sister program.

Since moving to The Villages, I have joined the Friends of the Library and work in their bookroom at Pinellas, became treasurer of The Original Virginia Club, and joined the Bookworm Book Club.

Member of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, the Chesterfield Historical Society and Chester United Methodist Church in Chester, Virginia.

Enjoy traveling, reading, playing cards, shopping, watching old movies, photography, and learning to play Mahjongg.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

Before we moved to The Villages, Bob and I were active HOG members in the Colonial Heights, VA chapter. HOG is the shorten version for Harley Davidson Owner's Group. No, I did not ride on the back of the motorcycle but I did follow along with the group on rides and trips in my SUV. One of our trips was to ride "The Tail of the Dragon," a very winding road with sharp curves in the mountains of Tennessee. The group rode their cycles and I drove our vehicle.....a very scary ride that gave me more gray hairs.
