I started working for the Caldwell School District in 1991 at Sacajawea. Two years later I moved to Lincoln, and then moved to Van Buren in 2006. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th grades and was the science specialist for two years. I am also a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy Reserves. I joined the Navy Reserves in 1992. I retire June of 2022. My husband retired in 2020 from a 32 year career in the military. I have two sons, Grayson and Brennon. I am fortunate because I love kids, and I get to teach. I love this country, and I am able to support it in the reserves.
