I’m blessed to be able to say that I have been a teacher my entire adult life. After graduating from college with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in English, speech and theater education, I was lucky enough to begin my teaching career at Centerville High School….and beyond lucky to retire from there as well. However, even though I gave up the day to day classroom part of my job, I still continue to work with my “big kids,” coaching them for their weekly speech competitions which occur during fall and winter. Who wouldn’t want to tour Ohio, riding in a school bus with highschoolers, every Saturday…..from the end of October to the middle of March!!!!? Apparently, life with my big kids, and my husband, stepdaughter and 5 grands just wasn’t enough, so when a Preschool Paraprofessional opening became available here, God led me to StAG. What a gift! Over the past 6 years, I have enjoyed sharing my Tuesdays and Wednesdays in our happy classroom, where special moments happen each day!! I look forward to another wonderful year helping your children build relationships, become independent, and learn more about themselves and the world around them.
