In another life, I worked in the real estate/construction industry off and on for about 20 years.  I also started and was raising my family.  I decided to go back to college in 1996 to pursue a degree in education so that I could be on the same yearly schedule as my children.  So I began teaching at 36!

I am married to Randy Thornton, and we are about to celebrate our 20th anniversary.  I have three sons and one daughter.  I also have seven wonderful grandchildren.
