    Default Hello!



    Hello Everyone,

    I just wanted to drop by and briefly introduce myself.

    I am a mom, teacher, and engineer. Except for my family, my biggest passion is photography. I have been interested in astronomy for a very long time, and I am hoping to add a new hobby/passion to my list.

    Wishing everyone a great day -
    Pam
