The small town of Fair Grove is expanding, which means more people, and that means more kids.  The Fair Grove Elementary has definitely seen these changes, with more kids flooding into the school every year.  The staff does an amazing job with these kids, teaching them, feeding them, and making their time at school enjoyable, however, they are becoming outnumbered.  They can only do so much with so many people, so some additions to their staff were made.

Heather Arnold and Katie LaRue have just recently joined the Elementary team and are welcomed with open arms.  Charity Holland, the Elementary Principal, says, ”Our new staff are blending in very well to our elementary family.”  The staff tries to make these new teachers feel at home as much as possible.  Mrs. LaRue says,  ¨My expectations for this school were to be welcomed and supported by fellow teachers and community members and I definitely feel that these expectations have been met. I love seeing the support the Fair Grove community has for their schools.”  Mrs. Arnold replied, “Everyone has been extremely helpful and encouraging. It has been a wonderful experience and I am happy to be part of the Fair Grove Eagle family.”

Mrs. LaRue´s area of expertise is Speech Language Pathologist.  She works with students of all ages who have speech and language needs.  She has an amazing background too.  LaRue commented, ¨Before I started working at Fair Grove, I was attending Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. I lived in Cape for six years and received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from SEMO.¨

Mrs. Arnold is a kindergarten teacher, but she hasn’t always been.  She says, “I taught second grade for Ash Grove Schools before moving with my family to the Fair Grove area.  My niece is a student here and she loves school.”  She also has some high goals for her  life.  Arnold says, “I plan to pursue a Masters Degree in education and continue to teach my kindergartners.”  LaRue and Arnold have grown into the community and are part of the Fair Grove family.
