Personal Background

I was born and raised in Argenta and an alum of AO where my mother retired after 35 years as an English teacher, so teaching is practically genetic. I am married to Andrew Weatherford, a local attorney, and we have two daughters, Charlotte and Abby. My younger brother is an active service member of the United States Air Force.

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
