Amy says: “I have been in the field of education in some way since I graduated from college. I have spent most of my career working with kids with special needs from toddlers to teenagers. I enjoy teaching because I love to see kids learn and be part of the process. While I was a part of different activities through school, the one that I am still occasionally involved with today is band. I met my husband in college when we were in the Marching Band at the University of Maine. I was a part of a band service sorority where I met friends that I have today. We still go back to homecoming every year to see old friends and play with the Alumni Band at the football game. We have been able to travel for some of our family vacations. We have been to Disney World and Disney Land, Universal Studios, Washington DC, and the Outer Banks in North
Carolina. The family favorite was the Outer Banks. We also have a dog and cat at home that love to play and cuddle while they sleep.”
