French instructor (42 years - all in 501) Teaching - Jardine/Boswell 1977-80, Highland Park 1980-88, Topeka West 1988-1996, Jardine/Chase/Landon 1996-1998, THS 1998-present. French Club Sponsor. Other past duties include Cheerleader sponsor, spirit club sponsor, volleyball & softball coach. I am currently a registered referee for volleyball. I work lots of extra duty, as I enjoy seeing the students involved in school outside of the classroom. I have a Persian cat, Papillon, and I watch a lot of TV, especially KU basketball. I love to travel to Paris and share my love of the city with students. My Mom was born in Paris, France and my Dad is from Lincoln, Kansas. I have one daughter (Jeannette) who now has her teaching degree. She is now pursuing her dream of being a Division I college volleyball coach. She is the 1st assistant and recruiting coordinator at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri,  so I am  "babysitting" her dog, Mater. Go Bears!
