I am in my fifth year at Vallivue Middle School. I have come to teaching as a second career, and I am loving it! Going back to college in your 30's is no small feat, but I feel like being, ahem, more mature (older) than my classmates gave me a different perspective as a new/old teacher! I have two boys, one in 8th grade and one in 4th grade. We live on a 40-acre farm where we raise rabbits and chickens and keep up with a big market garden!
