Meet Mrs. W.
This will be my twenty-second year of teaching at Barstow. Before that I taught for several years in Plymouth, Vermont and elsewhere.
My husband and I have two grown children. We have two dogs, Westies, named Tavin McKenzie and Gregor McDougal. I have a lot of interests and hobbies. I love to read, play the harp, paint with watercolor, spin yarn on my spinning wheel, and knit. I love plants and gardening. You will start to see plenty of plants in our classroom as the weather grows colder. I also love music of all kinds and sing in my church choir.
Although it isn’t really a hobby, I do love teaching and learning about all kinds of new and interesting things. I especially enjoy creating learning activities and projects to help my students.
Please write and tell me about yourself, your family and your interests! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
This is my spinning wheel!
