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 26 years to my wonderful husband Randy. I have 2 amazing children. Zack ,who is 17. He is a Senior at Larned High  School. He plays basketball, baseball, hunts and fishes. I also have a daughter, Gabriale, who is 14. She is a 8th grader at Ellinwood Middle School. She plays volleyball, basketball, tennis, hunts and fishes too.  We also have 4 adorable dogs. Laya is a black lab, Bell is a white, brown, and black beagle, and Daphne is a dapple dachshund. Our newest addition is Rocket our chocolate lab. He is the baby of our family. He's so spoiled by all of us.
My hobbies include reading, walking, camping, fishing, shopping, and mostly spending time with my family and attending my children's activities.
