I retired 3 years ago from classroom teaching, but was asked this year to take on a class and some administrative duties in the school started by my church. I have taught all grades K- 12 in public private and church-run schools, as well as homeschooling my own children for quite a few years. Two years were spent teaching First American children in reservation schools in AZ.
I lost my husband of 35 years in 2007 -- a victim of cancer. I have three grown children and four grandchildren ranging in age from 14 to 4. The youngest one in\s in my class this year.
