She taught elementary school for 6 years and then taught online classes to adults for 8 1/2 years.  Mrs. Mikesell lives in Payson with her husband and their four children.  She LOVES to bake, garden, read, and watch movies with my family.  Mrs. Mikesell collects many things, salt and pepper shakers, and rocks...too many rocks :-).

She says, "I am so excited to be at this school and to be a Salem Junior Spartan!"
