What is Your Favorite Thing About Your Job/District

“That I am an educator of middle school students!  I always thought that I would be an upper level elementary teacher, but middle school science is where I landed and it is where I belong.  I, honestly, could not ever be happier in any position or district than I am in the Fort Madison Community School District.”
