I graduated from Parkway South High School St. Louis Missouri.
I received my bachelors degree in education from Fontbonne University St. Louis Missouri.
After 25 years in St. Louis I moved home (where my parents grew up) to Kansas.
I completed my initial teaching license in k-12 art in May of 2016.
The wind in my sails took a starboard turn, I decided that while I loved art I wanted to be with my students in their core classes. I completed my licensure in 5-8 science in December of 2017.
My passion is helping students learn in the classes that they I struggled in and I know they struggle in. There were a handful of teachers in my life that never gave up on me when I struggled in the classroom my goal is to be that teacher for all who need me.
This is my second year at IMS.
I am teaching 7th grade science which centers a round biology and life sciences.
I am also a 7th grade homeroom advisor.
Prior to Teaching at Iola, I taught k-9 art for USD 420, Osage City.
