Who am I? A retired educator who loves her family and her life. Each day is a gift to myself. I try to stay healthy by eating right, walking, and doing some exercising. I taught for 50 years, mostly in the middle grades and I loved it. I was also a dancer and although I don’t perform anymore, I do write the dance reviews for the local paper. I keep a daily journal, which is like sharing with a friend. My family lives in New York City and Chico, CA, so I only see them two or three times a year. I volunteer with AARP OR and enjoy the people I meet and the information that I gather and share across the state.
