My name is Molly C. Hale and Pocatello, Idaho is my hometown. I still live at home with my mom. I have a lot of independence at home and in the community. I have two brothers, one sister, two nieces, and two nephews. I also have two dogs, one cat, and two birds. I have worked at the College of Education for seven years. The jobs I do are answering the phone, sorting and delivering the mail, filing, making copies, keeping the copy machine full of paper and ordering paper.
I volunteer at a hair salon and also volunteer at a school teaching fourth grade students how to knit on looms. Hobbies I enjoy doing are knitting, painting, exercising, swimming for Special Olympics, watching movies, and most of all reading for pleasure.
