Ms. Booher brings experiences from decades of teaching in a variety of different settings to her classes at OMS. Currently, she teaches 8th Grade Physical Science.
Born in Ohio, raised in Tennessee, Ms. Booher came to Marion County FL in 2000. Since coming to Marion County she has taught Social Studies grades 6-8, worked with Gifted students at Belleview Middle, taught fifth grade at Saddlewood Elementary, and came 'home' to OMS in fall of 2011 to teach 6th grade Earth Science.
She and her husband live in western Marion County, where they share their home with four very rowdy Airedale Terriers and her two horses.
