In 1997, I first came to Yaak and bought some property because it was so beautiful and peaceful. In 2002 I became a resident, took the teaching position, and taught here for 4 years. I then left to teach elsewhere and commuted back and forth. I enjoy teaching again at the Yaak School because of the one on one contact with each student and the joy I have as students reach and surpass their goals. After teaching 28 years, I find this to be the most rewarding experience.
