I have been teaching for a little over 25 years, with the majority of my experience in first grade. However, my background is varied, as I have taught kindergarten, first grade, fourth and fifth grades. Currently, I teach in a Title I school teaching Title I Reading to K-4 students.

I received my bachelors in elementary education from McPherson College in Kansas in 1978. I know, it's like forever ago. Over the years I took many classes, but didn't pursue my masters until after my children were grown. In 2005 I graduated with my Masters in Reading from Western Illinois University.
I am the mother of 3 wonderful children. Well, they're more like wonderful adults now. But, to me they will always be kids. :0) My two sons are married to wonderful girls who both work in education. My daughter just started her first teaching job in a PK classroom. She always said she wouldn't be a teacher. Aw! She decided to follow in her mom's footprints. Yeah! My husband, Rick is also an educator. He teaches building trades in our community to high school students. So glad I'm an elementary teacher. We have 4 beautiful grandchildren and another due in a few short weeks. Wesson is the oldest at 5, Oscar will soon be 4, Cooper 2 and a bit and Wyatt is just a little over a year old. It's fantastic being a grammy!! Love it!!
