Some things about me:

I was named after a movie star, Hedy Lamarr, from the 1940's.
My youngest, Olivia Harlow Laverdiere, is also named after two famous actresses - Olivia DeHavilland (she played Miss Melanie in Gone with the Wind) and Jean Harlow.
My favorite color is purple.
I love flowers. I have huge gardens.
I really like frogs. I have a "dry" sense of humor.
I'm very creative and love painting scenes in rooms. I like to recycle and repurpose (make something new from something old).
Olivia wears cloth diapers (they velcro just like a regular one and come in lots of cute colors!) to help the environment.
I like to sew. I make some of Olivia's clothes and most Halloween costumes. I sewed her cloth diaper wipes. I've made her some shoes (below), too!

I love outerspace as I think astronauts get to use the most advanced technology available!! Space is so COOL!
I love gadgets, especially techy gadgets (and I love office supplies!).
I love to read. I read books, I read for information online.
I love to research and find cool activities and games to link from my website for my students.
I LOVE to teach and have always wanted to be a teacher. Learning is EXCITING and students teach me something new every day!
Technology is the coolest set of tools out there! There's always something new to learn!
