    I started teaching in 1999.  Before coming to the RCSD- I have worked for Greece Central School District, and the Diocese of Rochester for all grade levels.  I have been an Art teacher for the Rochester City School District since 2007.  I have taught in several of the middle and high schools, before coming to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School #9 in 2011.  
    When not in school...
    I enjoy spending time with my family.  I am married to Mr. Hepburn, who is a farmer.  I have 2 daughters that are grown up and married.  One is a teacher, and the other a cosmetologist. I am very proud of both of them.  I am a grandma!  I have 1 grandson. I love being a grandma!!
    I also, have pets.  I have 2 dogs, Kapono and Ozzie.  Plus, 2 grand pups named Lima and Stanley.
    I like to read all kinds of books.  My favorite author is John Steinbeck.
    During the summer I enjoy working in my garden.  In my garden I grow flowers and vegetables.
