Meet Mrs. Edwards!
I am a passionate learner who loves school. As a child, I always looked forward to going to school and impressing my teachers...so much so I accidentally released about 100 lady bugs in my third grade class! As a teenager, high school was the place to meet friends, play sports, and prepare for college--oh how I miss Friday night football games! As a young adult, college was the place to discover who I was and what I believed--Stay Gold. I have been married for 27 years and I have two daughters, ages 19 and 21. This summer my new baby was born--"Buddy" a beautiful Shetland Sheepdog. This school year will be my 22nd year teaching, and I will present to you all the knowledge I have acquired over the years to become a confident, passionate, motivated, life-long learner!!!!
