Lynn Archer, Special Guest Teacher

After 23 years of service to AANI, Mrs. Archer retired in 2018.  She's happy to be back brewing up fun experiments in her special area of expertise- science!  She currently visits the class weekly as a special guest, bringing her favorite lessons along- whether it be simple machines, a foaming potion, or fossils.
