My name is Patricia Wright and after teaching at the Pasco County Juvenile Detention Center for 25 years, I will be retiring at the end of January 2015. I am interested in substitute teaching in Hernando County as I live close to the Hernando County line. Please send me information on subbing in Hernando County. Thank You, Patricia
