First Grade Teacher
Pathfinder Elementary

Welcome to first grade!  I have been teaching at Pathfinder since 2008. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education/ Early Childhood Education from Central Methodist University. I have a master's degree in multidisciplinary studies from Webster University.
I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my boys play baseball, and reading. My husband, Chris, and I live in North Kansas City with our son, Zachary, our son Elliott, our Corgi named Beans, our cats, Elphie and Cookie.  

First grade is a new and exciting time for your child. I'm excited to be a part of your child's first grade experience and looking forward to a great year!
