What did you do before LEAD?
Special Education teacher at Lafayette High School in St. Joseph, MO.

Why did you choose LEAD?
The instructional program offered and the opportunity for a new adventure.

What are you most looking forward to at LEAD?
Meeting the students.

A little about me; I have two dogs, a miniature dachshund (Coco) and a German short-haired pointer mix. 
I am married to Jim Creal for 24 years now.  I still live in St. Joseph which is my hometown but have lived in Kansas City before.  I have several nieces and nephews and I value my friends and family very much.  I have a brother and a sister (I'm in the middle).

I
 love decorating inside and outside.  I like to eat out and also eat home cooked meals and love to shop for just about anything.   I like reading in my spare time and traveling.  I plan to go back to Great Britain late spring.  I enjoy watching movies, especially scary (not gory) ones.  I worked in the restaurant industry for about 15 to 20 years off an on and I love to meet people.  I like listening to music from the '80's, especially the "hair bands"! 

I'm nervous and anxious, but really excited about being at LEAD this year.
