Teaching Philosophy:
My vision for my students at EGS is to enhance student success by providing a challenging academic education integrated with good character and values developing the whole student intellectually, physically, and socially.
Educational Background:
1. Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education from KS Newman University
2. ESL Endorsement from Kansas State University
3. 15 Years of prior Teaching Experience in Great Bend, KS. I taught 3rd grade, Title I/Reading Recovery to students in grades 1-6, Direct Instruction, Success For All, and I was the Success For All Reading Facilitator. 
I have been married for 24 years to my wonderful husband Randy. I have 2 amazing children. Zack ,who is 15. He is a Sophomore at Ellinwood High  School. He plays basketball, baseball, hunts and fishes. I also have a daughter, Gabriale, who is 12. She just started sixth grade at Ellinwood Elementary School. She plays volleyball, basketball,  softball, and she is in ballet. We also have 3 adorable dogs. Laya is a black lab, Bell is a white, brown, and black beagle, and Daphne is a dapple dachshund.
My hobbies include reading, walking, camping, fishing, shopping, and mostly spending time with my family and attending my children's activities.
