How do you “sharpen the saw”? (Personal activities and/or hobbies)

I love spending time with my family – my husband, two sons and extended family. I enjoy being outdoors: running, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, camping.  I enjoy music, and I love to sing.

How do you “sharpen the saw”? (Personal activities and/or hobbies)  Outside of the school day my biggest hobby is spending time with my children and doing activities in which they are involved in. I love to cook, spend time with my family, going to the beach and exploring new places with my children.

Other interesting facts about me: I am a mother of 3. I have 2 sons who are 8 and 4, my daughter is 2. I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, so I am from the area. I also lived a few years in Greece as a child and I am bilingual in Greek and English. Teaching is my second career.
