About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Southwestern Heights High School in 1999.  From there, I attended Seward County Community College and graduated in 2001 with an Associate of Arts.  After that, I transferred to Emporia State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education in 2004.  In 2010, I decided to go back to school and graduated from Newman University with a Master of Science in Education.  Four years later, I went back to Newman University and completed my Administrative Certification which I finished in May 2015.  

Degrees and Certifications:

Associate of Arts

Bachelor of Science in Education

Master of Science in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction 

ESOL Endorsement

Building Leadership Certification

Current Position:

I have had the opportunity to be with USD 480 for the last 13 years.  I began my teaching career at Cottonwood Intermediate in 2004 and taught 6th grade for seven years.  In August of 2010, I moved down and taught 5th grade for four years.  I am currently the Instructional Coach for Seymour Rogers Middle School.

Family Information:

I am very lucky in the fact that my parents still live here, in fact they live out at Hayne  - south of the ethanol plant.  I am the oldest of three kids.  My sister, Machelle, and her husband, Caleb, live in Waynoka, OK and they have two kiddos: Kennedy and Kade.  Last but not least, my brother, James, is Corrections Officer at the prison in Eldorado, KS.

I have two dogs:  a 12-year old Scottish Terrier named Eddy and a 5-year old Miniature Poodle named Pepper.  

Personal Information:

I love to read and that is my number one way to relax.  I love to cook and I cross-stitch and recently learned how to do needle point.
