Something on my “bucket list”

My husband and I would love to go on one of those "Around the World" cruises one day when the kids go off to college and we both retire. Our kids are 5 and 4, so we have some time before it happens! 

My favorite subject in school

I love science! Anatomy and Physiology was my favorite subject. I still love to read and learn about the human body. God's masterpiece! 

I think children are happiest when . . .

They are surrounded by love and acceptance.

If I could trade lives with anyone for a day, it would be

My kids! I would love to spend the day playing and exploring without a care in the world! 

If I couldn’t be a teacher, I would probably be

The owner of a pet adoption/rescue resort.

My favorite children’s book

Right now, my favorite children's book is Go Away Big Green Monster! It's a bright, colorful book that is interactive and the kids never get tired of hearing it over and over! It's a playful happy book young toddlers seem to really enjoy which makes it fun to read!

My favorite food

Vietnamese food!  I could it every day!! 

The best part of my job

The children! I love the imagination and minds of our 3 year olds! They are so full of happiness and laughter and I enjoy being surrounded by it each day at work!

I monitor all credit card accounts, process all credit card receipts, post and monitor direct drafts and online payments.

My favorite summer activity:

Summer is too hot for me so I eliminated it from the question ☺. Relaxing outside on a spring or fall day in a great swing w/ a gentle breeze- iced tea - and a quilt magazine or book ☺ Ohhhh……it’s the best!

My favorite hobbies:

Sewing, quilting, movies, visiting with extended family.

As a child, I wanted to grow up to be:

A grocery store check-out girl ☺ (back before scanners were invented!)

My favorite movie quote:

“You know I love you more than my luggage,” from Steel Magnolias.

If I were famous for fifteen minutes, I would:

Get someone to print a picture of me and one of our extended family that I wouldn’t mind having on my wall or desk.

When I drive, I like to listen to:

Country music and Old Time Gospel Hymns

My favorite food:

No contest….Chocolate….Chocolate Anything (but really good coconut cream pie is a really close second)

The best part of my job:

Being able to help people get what they need in the most efficient way with all the paperwork bases covered. Just as I expect those I get help from to know what’s best in their area, others expect me to know the steps or procedures involved in solving problems in my area. We all know there are hard ways to accomplish tasks and then there are easier “friendlier” ways to accomplish the same tasks and get to the same result. I take pride in knowing that how I do my job is as important as what I do, and that it can make someone else’s job life easier and happier is a great win-win!
