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 25 years to my wonderful husband Randy. I have 2 amazing children. Zack ,who is 16. He is a Junior at Ellinwood High  School. He plays basketball, baseball, hunts and fishes. I also have a daughter, Gabriale, who is 13. She is a 7th grader at Ellinwood Middle School. She plays volleyball, basketball, softball, 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 8 month old chocolate lab.
My hobbies include reading, walking, camping, fishing, shopping, and mostly spending time with my family and attending my children's activities.
