Pathfinder Elementary
1st Grade Teacher

Welcome to first grade!  This is my 19th year as a Platte County Pirate. I am originally from Wisconsin, and received my Early Childhood degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. I attended UW-Eau Claire to complete a certification to teach through 8th grade.  I have lived here for over 25 years but my heart belongs to the Green Bay Packers! I have been married to Mike for 28 years. He just retired from Park Hill South and is deciding what his next adventure will be. We have two children, Christopher and Kate. Christopher recently graduated from Mizzou and Kate will start her second year at Penn Valley. She plans on attending K-State to continue her education in animal science. Our family would not be complete without our beloved dog, Caesar. She is 13 years old and makes all the rules!

I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year.  I love working with 6 year olds and building a solid foundation for learning.  My favorite thing to do is read to them and share my love of literature and history.  I look forward to a productive year making new friends, learning, laughing, and having fun!  Thank you for sharing your child with me!
