Update (January '09): I am teaching a 4/5 blend at Sunrise Elementary School.  This is my 9th year of teaching.  I have enjoyed being part the Albany School District, this being my 1st year here.  The best thing that happened to us this past year was the birth of our son, Simon Cash. He's 9 months already. On December 21st he decided to start crawling straight toward the Christmas tree. He brings us great joy.  My husband, Andrew , teaches film at West Albany High School. He's involved with the wrestling program. We are very blessed to be near family. He is the first grandchild and couldn't be loved more.

Memories of OSU Gymnastics:
(updated Jan. '09)  I loved the friendships I made on the team. I appreciate the reunions where we can reconnect.  I enjoyed taking pictures and scrapbooking my gymnastics memories.  My worst memory was sprinting on the football field including the timed sprint tests.  I do miss the constant exercise and positive encouragement that went with it.  I will never forget my freshman year in Alabama at Nationals.  The Pac 10 meet my senior year was incredible. Most of all I appreciated the coaches.  They worked hard to make us better people and athletes.  Happy Retirement, Dick Foxal!

(December '07): Andrew and I recently moved from Southern California back to Oregon.  I have enjoyed attending the 2 intra-squad meets and am excited to attend the meets.  We are living in Albany, my former hometown.  I am teaching 3rd grade in Lebanon at Green Acres Elementary School.  My husband and I are excited to announce that we are expecting a baby boy April 28th.  I just could not wait to find out what we were having!
Go Beavers!

(August '06): This coming year will be my 7th year teaching fourth grade.  Andrew and I live in Southern California and we just celebrated our 5th year anniversary.  Come September, I will teach fourth grade and will work as a massage therapist in the evenings.  In the future, I hope to devote more time to massage therapy.
