I am a lifelong learner full of curiosity and endless questions. My favorite hike was the Great Glen Way in Scotland. We backpacked 79 miles in five days. I grew up as an Army Brat moving every two to five years. My favorite place to live was Stuttgart, Germany. Our Sitzmarkers ski club loaded a bus on Friday evening and drove through the night to Austria, Italy, or other places in Germany. We dropped our things in the hotel and took off skiing with friends all day. I came to Chapel Hill in 1986 to attend UNC. I have three daughters ages 24, 26, and 28. We are a futbol family and avid Tarheel fans. I currently teach 6th grade Language Arts at Durham Academy.
