Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I am so excited to work with you and your child! It's going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventure. I can not wait to see what is in store for us! I thought you might like to know a little bit about me...
I am married to my wonderful husband, Brock. We have an adorable 7 year old daughter named Sloane, a super sweet 19 month old baby named Presley and an enthusiastic Yorkie named Cooper. They take up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are decorating, shopping and reading!This will be my 16th year teaching in the Platte County R-3 School District. I taught Kindergarten for 8 years at Pathfinder/Barry, then 6 years in 2nd grade and now this is my 2nd year back to Kindergarten, my true teaching love. I grew up in Dodge City, Kansas and attended Kansas State University earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Art, graduating in 2004. I earned a Masters of Education from Baker University in 2006. I have been a Platte County Pirate ever since...It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I teach with passion so my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to speak with you whenever you feel the need.I look forward to an amazing year!
