For the first years of my teaching we moved often because of my husband's work. I first taught in Constantine, Michigan in 5th grade for 2 years, then Los Angeles, California in 5th grade.  Next Kansas City, Kansas for 2 years and then Cassopolis, Michigan Middle School in 6th grade 2 years. When I had my 1st child, I stopped teaching school for 11 years. i enjoyed staying home and being a stay at home mom to our 4 children.  I then began teaching in DeSoto County and have stayed here for 20 years, teaching 5th for 5 years and now 1st grade for the past 15 years.


I have been married a lovely 40 years to Scott Remington, my dear husband. We live in Lake Pladid.  We have 4 children:  Micah, who is married to Jen and is a Youth/associate pastor in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.  They have our 2 wonderful grandchildren: Emily Love, who just turned 5 and Myles Scott, just turned 3.  We have two daughters, Charity, in Lake Placid and Christa, in Miami.  Both daughters are almost finished with their PHd's and operate a non-profit organization in Haiti that sponsors children in school.   Our youngest is Josh, 22 yrs, who lives in Tampa and attends FSU as he works at Walmart Warehouse. We always have and still do thoroughly enjoy our family and are extrememely thankful for them.  Our times together are full of laughter, fun, and good conversation!
