I've been a substitute teacher since I graduated from UMass in 1974. I love doing something different all the time, different schools, different grades at the elementary level. I got married in 1973 and just celebrated our 40th anniversary. I was also very active in Girl Scouts from 1976 to 2008 as a leader and town representative. Lately I've been working with my husband in northern Vermont during the summer up to the Canadian border. I know more back roads in northern Vermont than I do in my own town.
