I am originally from Western Kansas. I graduated from Spearville High School. I attended Dodge City Community College and transferred to St. Mary of the Plains College to complete my major in Elementary Education. I graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education.
In 2001 I started teaching at Colwich Elementary. I have taught kindergarten, third grade, and coached jr. high girls basketball. I am presently teaching second grade.
My teaching career started in Dodge City, KS where I taught second grade for two years. I then moved to Wichita, KS and taught first grade at St. Francis of Assisi for fourteen years.
I have been married to my husband, Steve. for 27 years. He works for the United States Postal Service in Wichita. We have three wonderful children. Chris, our oldest, is married to Amanda, and they have two children, Wyatt and Emma. Our daughter, Jill, is currently teaching in 259 district. She will be continuing her education at University of St. Mary’s in Leavenworth, KS in their physcial therapy program. Our youngest, Jeff, is a freshman at Wichita State University. He is on the WSU track and field team. Being a grandma is awesome! The grandkids are so much fun to play with!
