Mare is a native of Guam, USA. She was born into a family of five siblings, her first friends. Playing school with her siblings cautions everyone that she had her mind on being a teacher at such a young age.
Mare’s first venture away from Guam was to attend Viterbo College in La Crosse, Wisconsin. La Crosse is a college town known for its beautiful bluffs. Her teaching experiences began by working with elementary-age children in Guam and the states of North Carolina and Indiana. She taught in both Catholic and public-school settings. No matter where she is, Mare’s passion and expertise in teaching was enjoyed by all for many wonderful years. Eventually, she went to the University of Arizona to pursue her studies in Second Language Teaching. Mary taught in Adult Education for almost twenty years. She did her lesson presentation of Crossroads Café-Indianpolis on TV to the new-English speaking population in Indianapolis.
Mare is now retired from her teaching profession and is enjoying on-going retirement with her husband in their home in Indianapolis. Mare writes her first book, Transitions in My Life, and dreams to write more books in her senior years.
