I am exciting to be teaching at Oneida Elementary School this year!  I graduated from Oneida many years ago and I am glad to be back in Oneida with my family.  My husband, Gary, recently retired from the US Army after serving on active duty for 32 years and we decided to relocate to Oneida to be near my family.  We have two children, Quintin (10 years old) and Rebekah (5 years old).
