Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Dumire / Reading Teacher, 7th Grade
I am originally from Fairmont, WV.
I attended Fairmont State University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also have a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist from West Virginia University.
I have taught for 17 years, both at the elementary and middle school level.
I have been married to Zachary for 17 years and we have an 8 year-old son, Jude.
Why did I become a teacher? I have always wanted to be a teacher and knew that was where I would be the happiest spending my future. Being in the classroom, in the company of children learning new things everyday, is one of the most inspiring and exciting places to be.
The most influential people in my life are my parents. They have always stood behind me in my decisions and supported me through each endeavor. My parents made education a priority for me and my three sisters.
One thing I hope my students learn in my class is that learning, especially reading, is important and an adventure waiting to happen!
