I am a teacher, a wife, and an avid "sports mom" to two wonderful boys. A native of Cape Girardeau; I currently teach at Cape Central Junior High School. As an educator, I see first hand the needs of families in our community during the holiday season. This is my sixth year as the Coordinator for the Jaycee Toybox project. I look forward to Toybox every year and have made it a tradition in my family as a means to give back during the holidays!
