I'm excited to begin my 12th year teaching at McKelvey Elementary. I graduated from Mizzou where I majored in Elementary Education, minored in Psychology, and received an additional certificate in Early Childhood Education. After graduation, I began attending classes at Lindenwood and obtained my Masters degree with a certification in Special Reading.
I began my professional career as a Reading Intervention Specialist at River Bend Elementary and McKelvey Elementary schools. After supporting students in the area of reading for three years, I moved into a Kindergarten position at McKelvey Elementary. This year, I am beginning my 9th year in the Kindergarten classroom. I look forward to spending this year as your child's Kindergarten teacher.
When I am not teaching I can usually be found doing something outside. I enjoy gardening and work hard to keep all my plants alive and healthy. I also have an active dog and chickens to look after. My husband and I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
