I am coming up on my 8th year teaching first grade and LOVED every minute of it! I've helped my nieces and nephews all through school.
Spunk, structure and silliness! I am a very organized teacher and keep a great deal of structure but I also know when to have fun. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty or to let my students find new ways to learn and be successful.

When I graduated from High School I moved to Manhattan, KS to attend Kansas State University...GO CATS!! I switched schools in 2003 and changed my major to Elementary Education at Wichita State University...GO SHOCKS!!! I received a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in 2006 and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2010.
I enjoy being outside camping, riding 4 wheelers, shooting my bow, and laying at the pool. However, I am also one that enjoys my inside time crafting and taking photos for families and friends.
