Additional Information

I retired after 30 years of teaching, took off a year, and began substituting in 2013. I enjoyed being with the kids and had teachers who I had known and worked with for years, request me. I also substituted in Drama, History, Reading, Writing, and Science. I prefer 6-12th graders.

We moved to Liberty in 2017, and I have been busy babysitting for my grandchildren. I miss the classroom and the kiddos. I hope your district will consider me as a substitute teacher.
