Life with Pete

I married Pete on August 8, 2008 and he is my best friend, the person I want to be with continuously, and my love. Even though I talk a lot about teaching and the impact that has had on me, Pete is the single most important person in my life. He is more important than the classroom, but that does not mean I want to have a different career. He balances me, supports me, and is an incredibly caring person. I am very fortunate he can look beyond the barriers and disabilities to see who I really am, what I think, and laugh at my jokes.
