Hello students and families!
Though I have worked here at Fort McCoy for 20+ years, this is my first year teaching eighth grade. I agree with the idea expressed by my co-workers that our school is the ‘best kept secret’ in Marion County. My three daughters came through Fort McCoy - this is the very foundation on which they built their paths to success. My grandchildren are beginning their educational journey here and I’m starting to see children on campus who are the offspring of former students… WOW!
My husband and I are North Marion High graduates and live at Lake George. Fort McCoy is my community’s school, so my pride in FMS goes without saying. As a rule, kids of the Fort are respectful, helpful, kind, and eager to learn. Getting to know you all this year as students of history will certainly be an adventure, and I look forward to it.
In addition to the credentials listed, I have also written two successful proposals for the National Register of Historic Places and am, myself, a sixth generation Marion Countian [sic]. It is my hope to bring a love of history to teaching historic content to eight graders.
