Hello, my name is Lynn Reuther.  This is my 26th year to teach and the last fifteen have been at Alvord Elementary in 2nd Grade. Before teaching I worked in the oil and gas industry in Ft. Worth and Denver, Colorado.  

When not teaching I love to be with my family.  My husband of 35 years is Norman, a Science teacher at Alvord High School.  He's also kinda like my "wife" since he loves to cook and helps out with the cleaning and grocery shopping.  I have a step-daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter (Sadie -14), and grandson (Asa -11) who live in Portola Valley, CA.  I am also extremely close to my "original" family (both parents, 2 sisters, and 1 brother) who all live fairly close.  :) Oh, and I almost forgot our newest furriest member - Hazel, a rescue dog, 3 years old.

Other enjoyments I have are playing handbells at church, ukulele, tennis, and golf.

My favorite day of the week is Sunday (other than Monday - Friday).  After church (1st Methodist in Decatur) I treat myself to a Starbuck's drink and then relax for the next couple of hours reading the Ft. Worth Star Telegram, followed by a nap. I know I am old fashioned but I still like to read the newspaper (vs. digital). 

"It's the hardest work (teaching) I've ever loved!"  I'm truly blessed to enjoy what I do.
