I keep in touch with Monica Cloward Kelley, GaeLynn Miner Kuchar, Susan Waggoner Jurkatis, and Diana Johnston Christensen. Other than that I haven't seen too many classmates as I moved away from Spanish as soon as I graduated (my parents had already moved to Montana)

What did you do right after high school? More school? Mission? Marriage? Military Service (also enter branch of military in next question)?

I went to BYU for 2 years and got an AA in Business, then worked and had five children. I got divorced in 1997 and went back to school in 1998 at the University of Richmond then moved to Arizona and got an El ED degree at ASU. Since then I've been teaching and raising my kids.

My service to my community/ Church/ or other volunteer service:

I've worked a lot with the Young Women at church and in Relief Society. I finally got put back into Primary after a 19 year absence. I've been a Girl Scout Leader and done Girl's Camp and all that fun stuff. I also belonged to a Mother's of Twins Club.

Marriage, children, grandchildren

I'm getting gray hairs but I can still pull them out and I do.

Cool things you have done?

Went to Europe for 2 weeks. Been on a Disney Cruise, went to Hawaii. Spent 11 months in Princeton, NJ which was basically a year long business trip my husband got to bring his family on and we saw every tourist site we could from Rhode Island to North Carolina.

How did you locate or find out about the new web site?

Facebook invite (who from): Annette Taylor/Carolee McKell

Who would you nominate as the best SFHS teacher and why?

Mr. Francom--toughest and fairest teacher--I learned a lot from him.

Ms. Andrus--loved shorthand with her. She was always so positive!

Mr. Strange--I had a lot of classes with him and I really respected him and his values.

Who would you nominate as the worst SFHS teacher and why?

None really. If they were mean--it's probably because we were driving them nuts.

Travel much? Favorite places to visit? Places you want to go?

I don't travel as much as I wish I could. I spend most of time traveling between AZ and VA as my ex husband is there and my children spend time in both places.

I would love to visit Australia some day.

Cell Phones
Computers
Netflix

I also don't get as lost as I use to with my GPS

Water--boring I know
