I have been a teacher at Platte City Middle School for over ten years. I have been teaching 7th and 8th grade math for the past nine years. Since two of our fantastic social studies teachers retired last year, their vacancies opened an opportunity for me to step into a new role. American History has fascinated me since I became an adult. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with students and can hopefully inspire all to gain an appreciation for our American heritage.
I got married on St. Patrick's Day 2017 to Josh. He made the decision to spend his life with me and my three kids, Michael (19), Isaiah (19) and Alison (16) Boydston. All of them have attend(ed) Platte County School district since preschool. We have four small dogs; Hobbes (pomerania), Bowser (morkie), Zeus (chihuahua/mini-pin) and Thor (chihuahua). We also have freshwater and saltwater aquariums filled with a diversity of aquatic life.
I love to travel, snorkel, scuba dive, pretty much do anything around a body of water!! I recently visited Lake Tahoe and I found I also have a love for snow skiing.
