About Me

Educational History:

In 1999 I graduated from Macksville High School in Macksville, KS.  I then made my way to the University of Wyoming and became a loud and proud Wyoming Cowboy!  In the spring with 2004 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I accepted my first teaching job in Cheney, Kansas and was provided the opportunity to teach Kindergarten, 5th grade, and 2nd grade over the course of eight years.  We then moved to Hugoton, Kansas and yet again, I was blessed to teach 5th, and 4th grades during our five years there.  Currently, we are beginning our third year at Minneola Elementary and I’m excited to be teaching 5th/6th grade ELA and Social Studies!

Family Information:

I’m so blessed to be married to my best friend!  My husband and I were married 2005 and were so excited to have our first son in the fall of 2006.  He enjoys fishing, hiking, and working on the family farm. Four years later we were blessed with a second son in 2010.  He has such a kind heart and loves to collect rocks, read books, and camp with the family. A little while after that we were excited to add a little girl to our family in 2017.  She currently loves playing babies, reading books with daddy, and bossing her brothers around.

Personal Information:

I’m an outdoors kinda gal!  I love camping, hiking, and spending time with family/friends.  When we aren’t out traveling with our camper I enjoy reading, crocheting, and cooking.  In my freetime (not sure what that is) I love to garden and play with the kids.
