Personal Pursuits

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, including husband Ed, son Scott, and daughter Beth - as well as our dog, Max, a Cockapoo whose nickname is "Grading Pooch" because he frequently jumps up onto a chair with me while I am grading students' papers. Gardening is also my hobby during the summer months...and I spend snowy winter months daydreaming about the garden while perusing gardening catalogs and web sites.
