Third Grade Teacher
Pathfinder Elementary

My alma mater is Platte County High School!  I attended PCR-3 School District from Kindergarten - 12th grade!  I have been teaching in the Platte County School District since 2000, making this my 23rd year of teaching in the classroom!  I began my teaching career in 5th grade for 11 years, 4th grade for 1 year, and this is my 11th year in 3rd grade.  I received a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State University), a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Baker University, and a Master’s of Education in Technology through Park University.  As you can see, I love learning new things!

I am married to my husband, Tony, and we have 5 amazing daughters; Brooke (25), Brittanie (22), Audrie (19), Mackenzie (16), and Kinlie (9).  Brooke is married and made me a Grandma to Liam, who is now 1½ years old.  Brittanie just graduated college and is beginning her career as a Kindergarten Teacher.  Audrie is a sophomore in college and plays softball for the college.  Mackenzie is a junior in high school, who enjoys running track.  Kinlie is in 4th grade, and she loves school and enjoys playing softball.  When we are not at a sporting event, we enjoy spending quality time doing other family activities…especially camping, eating out, and going to the movies!  I am also a HUGE KC Chiefs fan and KU Jayhawks fan!

I have high expectations for all students and believe all students can learn!  And, with a great partnership between you and me, your child will be very successful and grow as a 3rd grader!  I have an open-door policy, so please don't ever hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  I am looking forward to another fun and great year!
