Personal Biography:

I married my college sweetheart Joe Spoto.  We have been married for 28
years.  We have three children. I am active in my church and belong to
United Methodist Women which supports women and children’s ministries
locally and abroad. My women’s circle is D.O.T.S. or Daughters of The Son,
our goal is to create and develop a supportive Christian fellowship, meet
for prayer and spiritual growth.  The activities include support COPA in
the Dominican Republic, the church food co-op, make Meals on Wheels
favors, and support the Outreach clinic.   In addition, my family serves
taking turns on the ushering committee.  I enjoy traveling, camping,
cooking and spending time with our family.  My director, Susan Pardue,
retired at First United Methodist Kindergarten after 42 years of service,
and I wanted to teach VPK again.  I was delighted when a VPK position came
open at Immanuel Lutheran School.  I want to teach VPK in a Christ
Centered environment.  Immanuel Lutheran School is Biblical based, family
oriented, and has outstanding academics.   I enjoy teaching preschool and
I am looking forward to the new school year!

Favorite Bible Verse:
“As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.”  Joshua 24:15
