She loves reading the Lord of the Rings Trilogy because they are “so well written.” Mrs. Spence says that she has “read them so many times it’s like getting together with an old friend when I read them again.” Her hobbies outside teaching include reading, needlepoint, and spending time with family (especially her grandchildren).
