    Mrs. Mink, Room 18

    Educational Experiences:  I received my Bachelor's Degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.  This coming spring, I will receive my Master's Degree in Reading from Northwest Missouri State.  Lusher has been my home for over 22 years.  I taught 4th grade for four years, 3rd grade for ten years, and 5th grade for eight years.  I am so looking forward to starting this year's journey as a Reading Specialist!  Reading is one of my favorite subjects to teach, so getting to teach it all day is simply going to be amazing!

    Favorite Quote:  "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."    -Thomas H. Palmer, 1840 

    I'm inspired by... the educational growth of children!  Being able to watch them progress throughout the year, to go from the unknown to mastery, to make progress in an area that maybe they were never successful at before...ALL is a joy that warms my heart!
