EDUCATION BACKGROUND:

I have kind of an eclectic background of education.   I received an associate's degree in Travel and Tourism from Cloud County Community College and worked during that time as a travel agent.  I continued at KSU by studying Parks and Recreation for the next two years.  (I wanted to travel and I loved sports and being active.)  Neither major was right for me and I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up and excitedly transferred to Emporia State where I graduated with a degree in Education.

EXPERIENCE:

I taught 2nd grade at Jefferson West Elementary, 5th grade at Auburn Elementary, 7th/8th Grades at Washburn Rural Middle School and am in my 6th year at Seaman High School.  During that time I received my Master's in Gifted Education K-12, again through ESU (Go Hornets!).

Each year I spent in the classroom I felt was the "best year ever".  I realize now I was wrong all but the last 5 years.  Seaman High School is exactly where I want to be and I love the community, colleagues and especially my students.

PERSONAL:

I live in Topeka with my 3 kids.  Parker is 14 and a freshmen at Washburn Rural High School.  Cade is just shy of 12 and a 6th grader at Farley Elementary and Campbell is 10 and a 5th grader at Farley.

I LOVE to read and I like a variety of genre's.  My all-time favorite book is A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving.  Other interests are staying physically fit via a variety of activities, movie watching, & travel.
