My teaching career began teaching third graders in Missouri. I then became an K-8 ESOL teacher for USD 250 and am now teaching 7th grade Communication Arts. I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education (K-9) and Master's in English as a Second Language (pK-12) from PSU. I love teaching and believe that all children have the ability to learn and be successful. It's a collaborative effort between students, parents, and teachers and together we can move mountains. Being a teacher keeps me learning every day. I can honestly say, there is never a dull moment!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for fourteen years and we have two great boys, They love the outdoors, tractors, and trains. We live on a cattle farm and assist my parents with their grain operation, which keeps us pretty busy. The boys can't get enough of getting to help daddy and grandpa in the tractor or combine and green is their favorite color. I'm a tried-and-true country girl and love living on the farm--I wouldn't be at home anywhere else. I think my favorite memory has been having the twin calves in the living room!
I love music and play the flute and piano and sing. I play my flute and sing with our church praise team on Sunday mornings and love having the chance to praise God for all the wonderful people, things, and opportunities He has blessed me with. Other hobbies include gardening, working outside, reading, cross-stitching, learning new technology, and of-course, playing with my boys.
