What has been your greatest adventure?

One of my greatest adventures was when we took our girls on a Disney World Vacation. It was memorable.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?

I have been fortunate to have many amazing teachers, and it's hard to narrow it down to just one. My English teacher sophomore year of high school, Mr. Bates, however, was a tough act to follow. His passion about the writing process and every single detail involved was inspiring. I remember doing MANUAL word counts of every single sentence in an essay to evaluate the impact of sentence variety. I always enjoyed crossing the threshold of his classroom, and felt prepared for college because of how he pushed us to strive for excellence.
