Degrees and Certifications:
This is my sixth year teaching, and it is my third year teaching 3rd grade here in Ozark. I was born in Grant City, Missouri on our small family farm. When I graduated from high school I attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. I majored in Elementary Education and was also a member of the track and field team. Sports have always been a large part of my life, so being in Liberty I became a Royals fan. Because of my dad I have also cheered for the Minnesota Vikings since I can remember. My husband Aaron and I are expecting our first child this November and we have a cockapoo named Sadie. Some of my hobbies are sewing, running, golfing, and reading. I am working on my masters in literacy education at Missouri State University. My parents were my teachers and coaches growing up, so they were my inspiration to become a teacher. I feel absolutely blessed to work with children everyday!
