I have lived and taught in Fountain Hills for the last 9 years. My kids have grown up going through the Fountain Hills school system. Jacob will be a senior and Anna will be a sophomore. In January, my husband took over as lead pastor for Harvest Bible Chapel Fountain Hills. I am leaving my teaching position to help him minister to the people of Fountain Hills. But while I am leaving the day to day world of school, I do not want to leave the world of education. I love Fountain Hills and I am deeply thankful for the education and experiences it has provided myself and my children. The PTO is a way for me to stay involved and “payback” the district for the wonderful opportunity it gave me as a teacher. I hope that having spent almost a decade as a teacher in the district, will help me better help the teachers who are still here.
