I'm the Upper Elementary & Middle School Interrelated Teacher. I work with students in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. There is always lots of variety in my job, and each day is a fresh new start.
I grew up in Galva, Iowa, and attended a K-12 school similar to the former K-4 building in Lost Springs. Being the daughter of a veterinarian, I enjoyed being a member of Dad's Office Crew. Answering the phone, sending messages via the two-way radio, setting out medicine, tending pigs and the occasional calf, along with listening to the noisy peacock were all in a day's work. My subsequent jobs and careers have had just as much variety as being on Dad's Office Crew: grocery store clerk, waitress, dental hygienist, director of Christian education, diaconal minister, paraeducator, Title I aide.
