Mrs. Sparks

Hello! My name is Mrs. Sparks and I am thrilled to be your child’s kindergarten teacher! I am very excited to be a part of the Deerfield staff this school year. I look forward to teaching your child this year and I’m very excited to watch your child learn and grow each day! This year I will begin my 9th year of teaching! I have had the pleasure of working with many grade levels and I look forward to this being by first year teaching kindergarten.

I graduated from Emporia State with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and then returned to receive my Master's in Curriculum and Leadership.

This summer my family moved from Iola, KS to Lawrence. My husband, Ryan and I have two daughters, Bailey, 10 and Hayden, 7. I enjoy traveling, reading and spending time with friends and family. I am excited to start an adventurous school year!

I believe in maintaining a positive relationship with all of my families. Please do not hesitate to call or email me at:
