My first real job, other than baby-sitting, started when I was 14.  I was a trail guide at Grimms Riding Stable in Zoar Valley every summer until I turned 24.  Hoping to add pictures from that time shortly...

Attending college at SUNY Brockport, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics.  At the time the market was flooded with teachers, and I did not complete my teaching degree.  Instead, I went to work for what was then C-B Foods in Brockport, a division of Curtis-Burns.  I began as a girl Friday in a small office, and as the facility grew became Office Manager.  After eleven years, I left to complete my teaching degree, returning to Brockport to earn my Masters in Secondary Education in Mathematics.

                                        My teaching career began with the Rochester City                                                                         
                                        School District in 1986.  I found my niche in 
                                        Middle School.  Starting out, I was at Fredrick                                     
                                         Douglass Middle school for two years, East High
                                          School for 1 year, and eleven years at Monroe 
                                         Middle School.
Monroe Middle School- 1989-2000
In the fall of 2000 I left the RCSD and began teaching at the Honeoye Falls-Lima Middle School, teaching 7th grade math until I retired this past summer.  I enjoyed working with Middle School age kids, but am now looking forward to spending time at home kicking back with a good book, working in the garden, heading for the woods on my horse, golfing, or fishing!
