5th Grade Teacher
Compass Elementary

I am originally from Sioux Falls, SD and moved to Kansas City to complete my B.S. in Education at Park University (Go Pirates!). I am the youngest of three and a proud new aunt to my first niece. I am loving taking on the role of aunt and soaking up all the baby snuggles while she's still little. Last year, I moved to Costa Rica to spend a year teaching English to students in a public elementary school. It was a wonderful experience, not only because I was able to teach a new language to students in Costa Rica, but also because I was able to learn Spanish from them. I also loved trying new foods and learning about a different culture. Ultimately, the Kansas City area is where my heart is, and I have set some roots down here. I am so excited to be a part of the Compass family and a Pirate again!
