Growing up, JoAnn loved to play school with her younger brothers and sister. She started babysitting at nine years old and received a dollar for a few hours during the day. She always was a popular babysitter because she brought her own games, tricks, and books to amuse the children.
JoAnn received her education degree at Michigan State University and taught thirty-one years in California and Michigan. Upon retiring she spent two years writing this book about the funny, embarrassing, and happy moments she spent with her students.
You will find all kinds of delightful incidents in this book that will bring back many memories of your children’s school years.
Today, JoAnn keeps busy sewing, biking, cooking, skiing, giving parties, and traveling around the world.
She lives with her husband on a lake in Waterford, Mi.
