I was born and raised in the small town of Iola, Kansas. After graduating High School, I attended Allen County Community College and earned an Associates of Arts degree. I then went on to the University of Kansas and received a Bachelor’s degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. After contemplating graduate school, I decided that education was the field I wanted to pursue next. A couple of years later I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Wichita State. Before joining the Wheatland family, I was teaching Kindergarten in the Wichita School District for many years. I look forward to building great relationships with the families and students here at Wheatland.
