My father and my father-in-law were both born in Germany. My mom and mother-in-law were both born here but there parents were Slavic immigrants. As children my husband and I were taught that with hard work we could achieve anything so he became an attorney and I became a teacher.

In my public school job I taught English to Mexican immigrants. Now that I’m retired I have a new job tutoring inner-city African American and Hispanic youth in a Cristo Rey school. All my life I have seen Americans working hard to make a better life for themselves and their families. They have passed on the best of their traditions and accepted change and innovation.
