I graduated from Kansas State University in 2001 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I graduated from Fort Hays State University in 2004 with a M.S. in Elementary Education.
This is my 10th of teaching and my first year of teaching at Wheatland. I am very excited to be part of the Wheatland Warriors team!
I was a 2nd and 3rd grade looping teacher in Abilene, KS before going overseas to teach 2nd grade in South Korea. That was a truly unique experience and one in which I made some terrific memories. I came back to the states and taught for two years in Derby and now I am lucky enough to be teaching 3rd grade here at Wheatland!
I have a Shih Tzu named Crosby (after Bing Crosby) who honestly believes that he is a human and not a dog. I also have a cat named Esther (named after Esther Williams) who thinks that she IS a dog. She can fetch toys MUCH better than Crosby can! My parents live here in Wichita and I have one younger sister who teaches in Denver.
I love yoga and Zumba classes. I have been taking water color painting classes for the last year and even though I'm not a fabulous artist, I really enjoy it. Being anywhere in the mountains in Colorado makes me happy. I'm also a little bit addicted to shopping, especially buying shoes!
