I am originally from Lafayette, Indiana. I graduated from Purdue University, where I earned both my BS in Elementary Education and my MS in Curriculum & Instruction.
I moved to Kansas City after graduating, and began my career in education. This will be my 15th year teaching. I have taught 1st grade for a total of seven years. I have also taught 2nd grade, 5th grade, and have worked as an Instructional Coach.
I have two wonderful kiddos. Emerson is 3, and Jackson is 10 and is a 5th grader at Kellybrook. Besides teaching, I love reading, writing, being outdoors, and playing with my children.
