Mystery Person #1

Mystery Person #1

  • I am the oldest of 2 girls and my sister also teaches school in Barnstable as well. I grew up in Barnstable and proudly began my education at Hyannis West Elementary. I have 2 wonderful grown children who went to school in Barnstable and also live in Barnstable. I live in Marstons Mills.
  • I love to go boating, swimming, and fishing. I enjoy playing tennis and golf, too. I love the beach! I try to walk the beach every weekend in the summer. This summer I will be taking a course in conversational Portuguese. I have always wanted to learn another language!
  • My favorite place in Barnstable is Long Beach. It is so peaceful and serene.
  • The things that make me smile are happy smiling students, my family, and my friends.

Mystery Person #2

Mystery Person #2

  • I am the oldest of three, and I have two younger brothers.
  • I have two teenage stepdaughters and my mother-in-law, aunt, and uncle all live on Cape Cod.
  • My favorite hobby is lifting weights. I have a home gym AND 2 gym memberships! I also like hiking. I am hiking all 48 of the NH 4000-footers. I have currently hiked 43 and I hope it will be 46 by the end of summer.
  • For fun, I am learning how to play the drums. Playing music at home became something we did during the lockdown/pandemic.
  • For work, I have signed up to take conversational Portuguese classes through Cape Cod Community College.
  • Things that make me smile are the West Barnstable Conservation Area, laughter - it's contagious, and celebrating other people's achievements (especially students) – graduation, competitions, special projects, conquering fears, etc.

Mystery Person #3

Mystery Person #3

  • My family (with 4 children) reside in Plymouth, where we have lived for 12+ years. My family means the world to me and I am so blessed each and every day. 
  • I am a sports fanatic! Ever since I was a child, I have been a die-hard Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins & Patriots fan. Throughout my life, I have always been involved in sports somehow, whether it's playing or coaching soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball, you name it!
  • I enjoy gardening and landscaping, cooking & everything on the beach!! Craigville & Millway beaches are perfect for our kids & family to sit back, rest, relax & rejuvenate!!
  • Things that make me smile are food, friends, and family.

Mystery Person #4

Mystery Person #4

  • I am a third generation native of Cape Cod; born, raised, and educated in Provincetown.
  • I have lived in Barnstable since 1989 where I raised my two children who are both graduates of Barnstable High School.
  • I have a beautiful granddaughter, born last October, and 3 grand puppies.
  • I love boating, fishing and anything beach related. I also enjoy yard work and exercising.
  • I will be learning conversational Portuguese this summer to be able to communicate more effectively with some of our families. Portuguese was the first language of my grandparents and I understood it as a child so I hope it will come back somewhat easily to me.
  • Things that make me smile are any where there is sand and/or the ocean, my family, a sunny day, cool Cape Cod breeze, and the smiling faces of students greeting me in the morning.
