I am a lover of classic literature, classical music, and fine art. I find enjoy curling up with a classic novel with my cat on my lap, browsing in large antique shops, attending concerts, and enjoying the works of the masters in Chicago Art Institute or my local arts center. Married to Dan for 33 years and mom to Danny (27), Lacey, and Isabella(22), I am a retired high school English and Speech teacher, currently a substitute teacher and private tutor. I serve in the church I was saved in (1971) and consider it a privilege to give back to the congregation who invested in my life and(because my parents were saved there too)changed the course of my entire family. I enjoy writing and public speaking and enthusiastically encourage parents to school their children at home using the best literature, music and art available to them.
