Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri and have lived here most of my life other than leaving to go to college at the University of Missouri-Columbia. My degree from Mizzou is in Business Education, grades 7-12. When I moved back to Springfield I attended Southwest Missouri State University to get certified in Math Education, grades 7-12. Then, during my first two years of teaching I attended night school at Evangel College to get my Middle School Certification. I have since taught all grades 6 through college level. This year will be my 15th year of teaching; my 7th year teaching 6th grade. I have 3 kids of my own, a 7th grade son and daughters in 10th and 11th grade, all who attend Ozark Schools. I am a firm believer in open communication so please contact me any time you have any questions or concerns!
