    I have been at South Central since 1972... beginning as a fifth grade student. I graduated from S.C. in 1980 and earned my Bachelor of Arts from Purdue University in 1984. I began my teaching career in the parochial schools and was fortunate to return to my home school in 1986. I have taught first, second and fourth grades. After 26 years in the regular classroom, I added the Library Media Specialist certification to my license. So my classroom has expanded to Kindergarten through Senior classes. My duties include integrating the Information Literacy Standards and library skills. I am also involved in extracurricular activities with the high school, as sponsor of Student Council. My husband, Skee and I have three children, Anna, Jackson and Marcus. I am proud to note that of my family of 5, all are SC grads, with everyone but me starting at South Central as Kindergartners. We are proud of what SC has given us in values and educationally.
