Mrs. Fallow is teaching fourth grade this year because she has loved this grade level best and decided to teach in Morenci because she used to live in Clifton but now lives here and loves it.
Mrs. Fallow has a husband, a little girl who’s four, a one year old son, plus two dogs.
Mrs. Fallow went to elementary, and high school at Clifton, plus went to college at EAC and Western New Mexico, where she got her teaching degree.
