Married Jerry Blank who I met while attending MIT. The day after are wedding we boarded Amtrak and headed west to Tacoma where we both were finishing our education at the University of Puget Sound. We lived in Australia for 3 years. It was a tough decision to return to the states, which we did via Europe traveling with a 2 year old. I'de do it again in a second. We raised our 2 kids in Tacoma with a break living in a small town in North Carolina, called Washington for 2 years when the kids were 6 and 9. I went back to school and got certified in special ed. and early childhood. I taught at a school for young children "Birth to Three" where infants to 3 years old are evaluated. Those that have a delay in gross motor, fine motor, speech, socializing, or mentally would/could be in my class. I learned a lot in my class! After 14 years i retired to help baby sit while our daughter-in-law and son worked. I still get asked to sub. We live in a beautiful part of the country and enjoying traveling in our trailer. We were out 100 days in 2011 and went to 9 national parks. We love kayaking and have build 3 wooden ones. Our house has an extra bedroom that is just waiting for visitors.

School Story:

Walked to school and my best days were when a boy walked me home from school.
