 I am married and have two sons who keep me very busy with all their sports, music, and activities. I married my high school sweetheart after college. We met when I was only a 9th grader, so I always tell my students to be careful whom they date because they may end up with them forever! Seriously, Madison is a great place to raise a family, and we feel blessed to live here.
