Meet Mrs. Albee
I began teaching at Arovista School in 1998 and am loving every minute of it! My Master's degree is in Education with a specialization in Reading Instruction. I have taught fifteen years of first grade, six years of third grade, and am now starting my first year as a Reading Specialist. My favorite thing about teaching is being a part of the amazing growth that takes place throughout the year. I have been married since 1999 and have two wonderful sons. My hobbies include spending time with my family, listening to music, reading, camping, and going to the beach.
