I am very enthusiastic to be teaching 8th grade Math at SLMS for the 17th year in a row.  I taught at PLMS for 2 years prior to helping open SLMS in the year 2000.  Before teaching in Lee's Summit, I taught 6th grade for 10 years in Grandview at Meadowmere School.  I began my career teaching middle school Mathematics at St. Regis Catholic School where I taught for 2 years.  This will be my 31st year of teaching.  Wow, it doesn't seem like I should be that old.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a minor in Mathematics from Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO.  I then went on to earn my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from UCM.  

I have 2 children, Olivia and Garrett.  I lost my husband in a tragic accident in 2009 so I pride myself in raising my 2 children, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a leapard gecko on my own.  I enjoy reading, swimming, gardening, and spending time with my family.  

I am extremely excited about the upcoming school year.  I look forward to getting to know my 8 blue students on a personal level.
