Yes, that is my picture from 8th grade--Columbia Junior High, 1972.


I grew up in Columbia Heights, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis).  After graduating from college I moved to Aspen then Crested Butte to ski.  My family moved to Fort Collins in 1996.  I began teaching at Lesher Y2K, and I've been here ever since.

Favorite Quote: 

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." -Mother Teresa

Extra curriculars : 

I help coach tennis in the fall, and I coach golf in the spring.

Crazy fact: 
I am a distant relative of renowned Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen, the most frequently performed dramatist after Shakespeare...or so they say. (http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/_pdf/first_folio/folio_enemy_about.pdf) Another crazy fact is that my three children (all grown, graduated from university, and working) and I were all born on Wednesday.
Favorite Book: 

My favorite book is the one I just read, the one I'm reading currently, or the one that's next on my list.  As of today, those books are Song of Fire and Ice: Dance with Dragons;

The Practice House; Salt to the Sea.
