Los Alamos School Board President Jim Hall and School Board Vice-President Judy Bjarke-McKenzie joined with students and staff Tuesday in meeting with high school math teacher Marilyn Fabry to recognize her 19 years of service to the district. She has spent 38 years teaching in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.
Students and staff dressed in orange in acknowledgment of Fabry’s favorite color, which harks back to her days as a student at Oklahoma State University.
Students said on the walk to her house that Fabry is their favorite math teacher and that she is always positive. Fabry makes math fun and helps them learn formulas through her silly math songs, students said.
Staff members participating in the walk to Fabry’s house described her as an icon at the school. High school staff appreciate her collegiality and her ability to organize a great staff lunch.
