I am a social studies teacher at Buckfield High School. I began teaching here in 1993 and have enjoyed my position and the students, at Buckfield High School. I particularly enjoy seeing former students at school events.
I am proud of the fine educational experience we can, and do, provide our students. My daughters are both graduates of Buckfield and after college, have successful careers in New Jersey and New York City. I never doubt that any of our students, who want to, will be able to accomplish whatever they wish to do, with the proper attitude and work ethic.
My first teaching assignment was in 1967, in my hometown. I taught 5th grade and ended up doing so for 5 years, I also worked one year doing pullouts from classes for Title 1 reading.
