    About Mrs. Fasnacht
         Welcome to third grade! This is my sixth year teaching third grade at Whitney, but it is my 28th year teaching!  I was born in Toledo, Ohio and graduated from the University of Toledo with an Elementary/Special Education degree.  After meeting my husband, we moved to Cleveland where I taught for 11 years. I earned my Master's degree from Cleveland State University in Curriculum and Instruction specializing in Montessori Education ages 6-12.  In 2000, I began teaching in Strongsville as a Small Group Instructor/ Intervention Specialist.  
         I am a mother of three boys, two are in college and my oldest son is beginning Law School.  We also have a crazy dog that completes our family.  I enjoy  warm weather and beaches! I cherish the times our family can all be together.  I like to decorate my home and sweat it out during a great kick boxing class!   But most of all I love teaching!  I believe everyone has something they are good at and not everyone learns the same way.  Everyone can reach their fullest potential through hard work, discipline and practice.  I look forward to working with your child!
