     After receiving a bachelor's degree from Ohio State, I taught science at Lakeview High School for 29 years before serving as a technology coordinator, science specialist/instructional consultant and university instructor for another 12 years with other educational organizations.  Having served on boards of education in three different districts, including two terms in Lakeview Schools, has reinforced an understanding of the unique nature of this school district and the wonderful opportunities afforded our students.  Hopefully we will survive the laws and policies of the Ohio Legislature and the State Board of Education!
     Thanks to the parents, professional staff, community members and school employees who have supported and enabled Lakeview to thrive as it has.  Go Dogs!
