About Me
Before I say anything else about myself, let me say this: I love teaching. I love it so much. My students crack me up literally every day. I always do my absolute best to make class as fun and meaningful as possible. 

I've been teaching high school since 2006. I spent the first twelve at my old high school in Pittsburg, KS, and then I started at LHS in 2018 when my husband and I decided to uproot our three dogs and move to our favorite town. He's a teacher, too. We love it here. 

I teach AP Lit, Creative Writing, and English 10. I'm the sponsor of Book Club and the co-sponsor of the Writers Club. 

Also, I'm hosting a trip to Greece in the summer of 2024, so come talk to me in room 217 if that sounds like something you'd like to do!

Besides teaching, I love writing (my author website is, movies (especially at Liberty Hall), coffee shops, concerts, and road trips.
