How long have you lived in the Verde Valley?

I have lived in the Verde Valley since 2015 and moved from Frankfort, Michigan. 

Are you married and, if so, to whom and for how long?

I am married to Randy Young from the Verde Valley Bicycle Company.  We got married just over a year ago at a bicycle themed ceremony!  

What do you do for a living?

I am a teacher. 

How long have you been a teacher?

Four years 

Where do you teach/what grades/subjects?

I teach 5th and 6th grade ancient world history at Cottonwood Community Elementary School.  

What do you like most about being a teacher?

I love teaching because I get to work with youth, I have so much fun with them.  The other part I love about the job is that it challenges my creative side while allowing me to use scientific based practices.  

What do you like least about being a teacher? 

Does your school participate in the Bikes4Kids Program? 

Yes, we just started a club this year and the students are thrilled!  

How often does the program meet in your school?

We meet twice a week for an hour and a half or two hours.  

How many students participate?  

We have seven members. 

What have we missed?

When I moved to Arizona I wanted to begin riding a mountain bike because it was so popular here.  I did not want to miss out!  I fell in love with riding because of the exercise, being out in nature and most of all the community.
