Mrs. Linda Pfohl
I am very excited to join the team of Riverwood Middle to continue my jouney as a middle school math teacher. For me to tell you about myself, I will need to take you on a journey that brought me here to work with students. I started in New York City in using math to prepare a large payroll for Western Electric. I had a chance of a life time to take a 34-foot motorsailer to the Virgin Islands. I learned celestial navigation which is math with latitude and longitude. While I was there, I earned my Captain License and took passages to teach tourists snorkeling in the beautiful coral reefs of the Caribbean Sea. I also delivered small boats from the U.S.A. to the islands. On one of my deliveries, I got shipped wrecked in the Bermuda Triangle, but was rescued by the U.S. Navy. I knew then, that I had a purpose, and vowed to continue by education while I was at sea. I wanted to widen by career at sea, and I join the U.S. Merchant Marine and sailed mostly in the Pacific Realm. While I was on the ship I continued my education through correspondence classes. I met Mr. Pfohl and moved to North Carolina. This required moving from Hawaii. I shipped my Harley Davidson Motorcycle to California, and then rode solo cross country to meet Mr. Pfohl in Florida in a 8-day trip. There my Harley went into his pickup truck and our lives together began at Mr. Pfohl’s home in North Carolina. While continuing my education, I worked as a substitute teacher. I could attain my Electric License and taught electrical apprentice in the Wheel of Learning and on the job training. The apprentices had a big problem with measuring and I knew I had to continue my education and teach middle school math. I then became a Teacher Assistant and continued my degree in education, from East Carolina University. When I graduated with my degree in education I got a job as a math teacher. So now I have fulfilled my journey as a math teacher. I will always be a lifelong learner; and I hope that my journey will show that you can reach your dreams with the help of education.
