Hello students, parents, family, and friends.  I would like to take this opportunity to share with you about myself.  I was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas.  I attended Auburn Washburn Schools and the University of Kansas, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Education in 1991. 


I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to teach, so I spent a year subbing in various levels, districts and subjects. During this year, I found a home at Sumner Elementary. I began there in 1994 as a computer teacher, in a converted basement computer lab with 36 Apple IIe computers. Sumner closed 2 years later and I moved to Scott Computer and Technology Magnet School, where I remained for the next 7 years as a Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher. In my quest to learn more about education, I moved to a district level position as a math liaison to 5 elementaries and began graduate coursework at Washburn University. In the spring of 2004, I earned my Masters of Education in Administration.


The fall of 2004, found me at Quinton Heights Elementary as the Reading First Literacy Coach for K-3 teachers. When that grant ended, I moved to McCarter as a reading teacher and coach. In a quest for something different, I moved to Whitson Elementary. After 2 years, I was questioning my future in education. That is when I discovered middle school!


I had the opportunity to move to French Middle School. I taught 6th grade word processing for half a day and was the curriculum coordinator for the other half of the day. It was just perfect for me, back in the classroom, getting my hands dirty again, the other half of the day was back to testing, leading professional development and working with textbooks and curriculum. After a few years, I was getting the itch to move into administration and so I moved into assistant principal. 


I moved to principal at Williams Science and Fine Arts Magnet school, but realized my real passion was in middle school, so when an opportunity presented itself, I took it and here I am at Eisenhower Middle School and excited to be back with my people in middle school! 


I have one daughter, Addison. She is a product of Topeka Public Schools, a graduate of the University of Kansas and Michigan State University. She currently resides in Lawrence, Kansas.
