Ms. Calhoun was born in September and her hometown is Plymouth, MA. She attended college at UMASS Dartmouth (Major: Sociology, Minor: Criminal Justice) and American International College (Masters in Special Education).
My favorite teacher was my high school chemistry teacher. She was full of energy and kept us engaged. She would start the class with a mediation and end the class with playing a song on her guitar. We did a lot of hands on experiments and I did very well in that class. I actually majored in Chemistry my first year of college.
