A Little Bit About Me.....
 
I have been teaching for 22 years, spending the last 5 here at Martin City Middle School.  I have taught almost all grade levels from high school English to third grade.  Of all of those, my favorite grade level is middle school.  I come from a family of teachers: my sister and brother were history teachers, my dad taught military history, and my favorite aunt was a lovable  "old maid' school teacher who taught first grade for 50 years (she regularly corrected my letters and sent them back to me). She spoke of every student as if  he or she was her own child. Love of learning and a persistent curiosity were staples in my household.  I attended University of Central Missouri and the University of Missouri at Rolla.  My undergraduate degree is in Secondary Education/English, My master's is in Curriculum and Instruction/Social Studies.
