Hello! This is my twelfth year in the Lawrence Public School District and my eighteenth year in education. This is my second year at Prairie Park Elementary. Prior to this, I taught for ten years at Lawrence Virtual School. I am originally from Central Minnesota. I moved to Kansas to attend MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Since then, I also received an endorsement to teach English to speakers of other languages from Emporia State University, and a Master’s Degree in Education/Education Technology from Peru State College. I have many interests, but most enjoy hiking, running, swimming, attending musical concerts/plays, and traveling. I hope to make a difference in the lives of the students I work with throughout the year at Prairie Park Elementary!
