Her favorite hobbies are cooking and chasing her kids around to their various activities. When asked if she could tell her students one thing that they would always remember she replied, " Never give up! In the words of Jimmy Dugan "It's suppose to be hard. If  it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great. "
