My daughters, Mackenzie and Miranda and husband, Bill are the highlights of my life.   Mackenzie is a 31 years old living in San Diego where she is a performance dietician and tennis pro.  She is married to Mike Hatch, a Navy helicopter pilot.  Miranda is married to Anthony Scalabrino, a Navy pilot.  She has a Phd from the University of Florida School of Medicine.  She is a neuro scientist.  I'm proud tp call her Dr. Miranda Scalabrino.  She is currently a post doc at the Duke University.
This is my 12th year as an educator at RBDE.  I have taught sixth grade for 8 years and 5th grade for 3 years.  
Got to love my non-human babies Joel, KeeTee, and Buttercup.
There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.  Beverly Sills
