How many years have you been a JA volunteer?
I have been a JA volunteer over the past 3-4 years (but I led JA many years ago...just can't remember those dates).
What is your favorite grade/JA program?
My favorite grade to teach JA to is whatever grade I have at the time! I am comfortable with all elementary age students, but truly, I like any student that is receptive, especially to my style of instructing.
Why did you choose JA?
I chose JA because I believe in their message and mission, the materials are very well written and offer applicable options, my husband and son have been involved in JA, so it's a family thing, and finally, I trust our Spacecoast JA staff. They are hard-working and efficient.
Where do you work?
I work from home - writing and illustrating children's books. Formerly, I was a professional children's entertainer and children's ministry director.
Do you volunteer for any other organizations?
I volunteer for Rolling Readers, Brevard Schools Foundation and The Morgan Project golf committee.
Do you have any hobbies?
My hobbies are drawing, golf, crafts, reading, and walking/exercising. (Is socializing a "hobby"?! How 'bout housework?! LOL!)
What area of Brevard are you from?
I live in South Cocoa Beach. My husband and I also own a farm in Georgia that keeps us very busy.
