Special Education Teacher
Platte County High School


Welcome to PCHS! I graduated from Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS with a teaching degree in the social sciences and earned my master’s degree from Washburn University in special education. I have taught middle school social studies and special education classes and the last 9 years taught special education, mostly math, at Lansing High School. My husband, Ron, and I have four grown children and four grandchildren. I enjoy being active by riding my bicycle, swimming, and doing yoga, as well as traveling to the beach whenever I can! I am very much looking forward to my first year at Platte County High School and, having been a Jimmy Buffet fan for many years, am excited to officially be a Pirate!
