Frances Oare

Hi, I'm Mrs. Oare! This is my 33rd year teaching and I still love it! I've taught in Michigan, Hawaii, Washington, Ohio, and Kansas. When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family, figure skating, and eating anything chocolate :)


I once competed with Mary Lou Retton..... OK.... so I really just got to perform with the band for the ceremonies for the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and she happened to walk past me as we were waiting to enter the stadium.
