``Her classroom is very quiet,'' added Kathleen, describing her mom's teaching style. ``My class is loud, to be quite honest. Mine's a bit more zany.''
Married for 32 years, Jo Ann used to teach third grade but switched this year to work with Kathleen - they look forward to team-teaching soon, with Kathleen handling the social studies duties while her mom (1) (Messaging-Oriented Middleware) See messaging middleware.

While Jo Ann's youngest moved out of the house last year, Perdisatt and her daughter/colleague still spend plenty of time together.
