I am in my 20th year of teaching. I did most of my years teaching for Wichita Public Schools. I then taught in Yukon, Oklahoma for three years. I came to Andover in January 2016 to help start the ELDP program for students coming to Andover schools that speak little or no English.This year I will be at Cottonwood Elementary a portion of the morning and the rest of my day will be at AMS. I have the best students and wonderful support.

I have two beautiful daughters. Sophia is a Freshman at AHS and Lucca is a 1st grader at Cottonwood elementary. I have a Golden Retriever named Jonah and a kitty named Snickers. 

Personal Information:

When I am not teaching, I like spending time with my family. I love working in my yard, making it look beautiful. I love hiking in Colorado. I love coffee and watching Good Morning America! Going on walks and exercising is also important to me.  This year I have  started biking. I went biking in the mountains and  just the other day I rode 30.5 miles. I want to do a 50 mile race sometime soon, and in the future I want to try to do 100 miles. GOALS!!!
