Michelle, Bren, and Pat

Michelle: “I have been teaching at Cardinal Valley Elementary school for 20 years. I taught the parents of some of my current students. I started as the library media specialist and became the art teacher 8 years ago. I have been teaching in Fayette County for 26 years total. I taught special education and Arts and Humanities at Winburn Middle for 6 years… With online teaching, I really miss my students. And I am proud to be a Kentucky teacher!”

Pat: “I’ll cut my hair when we have a real President.”
