I attended Elmira College in Elmira NY, home of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) and earned a BS in Human Services/Social Services.  After graduation I worked in nearly every aspect of social services for about 16 years.  When my husband, who was in the Air Force, received orders to Alaska in February 2005, I decided to take a break from the field and find a job that would allow me to spend more time with our two elementary aged boys and my husband.  The school district was the obvious choice.  I applied and received a position as a paraprofessional nearly 15 years.
