I have enjoyed working for Fruitland School District for 17 years. I started as a special education para-professional at Fruitland Middle School. I loved my 14 years there working in the classroom, helping with the after school programs and summer school. Three years ago I decided that a change might be nice. I requested to come to the elementary level when there was an opening. I love all ages of children and I truly believe that they have taught me so much. The staff and children I work with continue to inspire me.
