This is her 25th year of teaching and 17th year as a librarian. She has taught in Guam, Florida and Texas. New to the Junior School, Mrs. Chasse is looking forward to getting to know the AHJS students and being a part of the Alamo Heights Comnunity.
Elizabeth Flynn grew up in the sleepy coastal village of Morro Bay, California.
