I thoroughly enjoy the enthusiastic and collaborative community at Fairview High School at both the student and faculty levels. My husband and I have 3 children who all graduated from Fairview. This year I am returning from a AAAS Science Fellowship that focused on environment and health programs for the U.S. government.
