Spanish and French
 
I was raised in Kansas but was born with a great desire to get to know other areas….of the country and of the world.  In my adult life I have had the great opportunity to visit 14 foreign countries and many of the states of this great nation!  I always look forward to these adventures! .
I am also very involved in my church and love to read.  I have two children who are 24 and 20 now and live on their own.  My daughter is Micaela and is studying still, and my son is Joshua and is married and lives 15 miles from where I live.  Our family has two cats that are very much a part of our family, Osito and Simba.
 
I started learning Spanish at age 14, quite by accident, but have been in love with it and languages and geography in general ever since.  I graduated from Pittsburg State with a Bachelor of Science in Education in Spanish and French and many years later, from Emporia State with a Masters in Science in Instructional Design & Technology.
