She has a Doberman-lab mix named Hoagie (Yes, after the sandwich…blame Joel for the name.)
As a young lady, Case made the decision to become a teacher. because of a chance meeting. She met one of the Little Rock Nine (Group of students that took a stand to go to a school of their choice when it wasn’t popular for African Americans to attend a White school during the 60’s) which inspired her. Her favorite subjects are math and science, both of which she now teaches.
