I fell in love with middle schoolers!
After a successful 20+ year career in Operations Management and Analysis, I took a year off and became certified to substitute teach. I worked in classrooms from Kindergarten (herding cats!) to 12th grade. My favorite classes were at middle school. My second year of subbing began with a 12-week assignment here at LHMS, filling in for a teacher on maternity leave. That twelve weeks was when I realized I would never return to high-tech - I fell in love with middle schoolers!
Middle school is such a pivotal time for our kids, and the growth they experience from 6th grade through 8th grade is amazing. I'm lucky enough to have all three grades in my classroom. I teach:
Earth Science (6th)
Exploratory Keyboarding/Digital Tools (6th)
Computer Explorations (7/8)
I'm actively involved in our PTSO. When I'm not at school, I'm busy with my family. I have been married to my husband, Rob, for 30 years. We have 3 kids - ages 17, 12 and 9. We also have a yellow lab, a kitty, two leopard geckos and a turtle. Life is good.
Thank you for letting me teach your child this year - it is an honor and a privilege.
