Hi Welcome to my class website. Let me tell you about myself:

I grew up in  Boise Idaho. I went to Boise High School, which is very similar to Topeka High School. It is the downtown school near the state capitol. In high school one of my teachers asked me to teach a lesson for the class. At that moment, I knew that teaching would be my life's work and passion!
I attended Boise State University  and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I earned my Master's Degree in Music Education from The University of Idaho. I have since added additional authorizations in English Language Arts /Reading. I hold 3 licenses, Language Arts, Music and Multiple Subject Elementary.

My family lives in Auburn on our family farm. We have one daughter ( Washburn University graduate, class of 2017)  and one son  currently attending college in Ohio.

My husband RJ and I enjoy our farm in Auburn!     We have about 80 laying hens, a large greenhouse where we grow and sell fresh produce and farm fresh eggs.   

  I have taught music  and language arts classes in the states of Idaho, Oregon and California.   In 2007, we moved from Sacramento  (where my husband was stationed in the Air Force)  back to  sunny Kansas!  We returned here to be closer to family and return to family farming.

 I love teaching reading so I have the perfect teaching assignment here at Topeka High!  This year I teach  5 sections of reading  classes in 114.

I am looking forward to a great year helping my students enjoy reading lots of great stories and learning from them.

 I wish I were better at building websites, this is a new learning curve for me, but I will do my best! I can't get the picture of my chickens to turn the right way!!! Maybe one of my students will help me.

Enjoy your high school children! They will  too soon be grown!
Thanks and have a great year!
