Aly Pedersen, Orchestra teacher
Rehearsing with the Serenata Orchestra on Tuesday nights
Halloween because it's fun to dress up and eat candy
Mrs. Bivens was my 5th grade teacher. She taught us to have fun with challenges and keep working through the problem.
Orchestra! (Because that's what I do.) Creating music is a magical experience and sharing that with my students is always a delight.
6? Where I lack in funny I make up for in weird.
Seeing the excitement on everyone's faces on concert night.
Orchestra was the highlight of my day in middle school (we didn't have it in 5th grade) and it was the class that got me through the day. I wanted to do something musical with my life and what better way than to teach the next generation of musicians!
Nelda Hubler, Librarian
I love my kids and books.
Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett are two of my favorite authors.
I read everyday.
If there are decorations, costumes, and music: I'm in.
Mrs. Questor from Mountain Home was my teacher and 4H Leader. We did so many fun things.
I teach Library Science and book appreciation.
I am a 3 on the funny scale, and that is by accident.
I was helping a little 1st grade girl take a reading test. When she finished I congratulated her saying, "Wow, you went so fast I could hardly keep up." She responded, "That's okay Mrs. Hubler, young people are faster than old people." I managed not to crack up until she left the room.
Once my kids grew up I realized I really missed all the time I spent teaching my kids. So I was very happy to have the opportunity to share my love of reading with a new generation
