Two places, 1775 Versailles, to party and dance like Marie Antoinette or 1600 London, to hang out with Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre.

If you could be a superhero and have one superpower, which one would you want and why?

Telepathy – I would love to know what my students are thinking.

What is one goal you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?

I have already achieved having a husband and child that I adore… my next step is to advance in my career and then wait 20 years for grandbabies… lol

Who is your hero?

My mom – She is patient, strong, kind to everyone, and always there to lean on.

London – Globe Theatre

If you could be anyone other than yourself, who would you be and why?

Why would I want to be anyone else? If you don’t like the way you are, or your circumstances in life, try your best to change it… Don’t change who you are.
