Instructional Coach

Pathfinder Elementary and Barry School

Hello! I am currently starting my 9th year in education and I could not be more excited to begin it with a new challenge of instructional coaching. I received my bachelor’s degree from Truman State University, master’s degree from University of Central Missouri and am currently finishing my specialist degree with Arkansas State University. I believe that education is a very rewarding, yet challenging, profession and none of us can do it alone. We are so lucky to get to work with kids and help expand their understanding and thinking every day. It is through good instruction and relationships that kids grow into their true potential. In the past few years, some of the most rewarding experiences I have had were stretching my thinking with other teachers by collaborating in planning, risk taking, and reflection. This has led me to Pirate Nation! I could not be more excited to join your team! Starting this position with your buildings is truly a dream come true. When I saw how forward thinking and student centered the Platte County School District is, I knew it was exactly where I wanted to be. I am thrilled to get to continue working with teachers but through a new lens. I look forward to working and learning alongside you and cannot wait to get started!
