Welcome to 5th Grade!
  • I am so honored to be allowed the opportunity to teach your child this year!   

    I have been teaching since 1996!   My own educational career began at Benedictine College, where I received my BA in Elementary and Special Education.  I went on to Baker University for my Master's in Education in 2003.  In 2013, I achieved the highly coveted National Board Certification. I earned my Reading Specialist degree through Park University in 2015. Platte County R-3 School District has been my home since 2003.  
    I have taught 5th grade since being with Platte County. Siegrist departmentalizes which means our students will rotate between four different teachers.  My emphasis is in the area of Communication Arts.  I love what I do, and I am very passionate about reading.  I make it a top priority to find books your child will love to read! I teach my homeroom, Mr. Bogart's class, Mrs. Scanlon's class, and Ms. Kirschner's class.
    I have two children.  My son, Dalton, will be a sophomore at Highland Community College this fall. He is majoring in business and will be playing baseball.  My daughter, Demi, will be a sophomore as well.  She will be at the Platte County High School.  I look forward to a great year.  I cannot thank you enough for trusting, supporting, and sharing your child with me.
