Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! This is my sixth year teaching at Prairie Park Elementary. I've taught five years of fourth grade and am excited to take on a new adventure in fifth grade. I am a graduate of the KU School of Education. I live in Eudora with my husband and two beautiful children, Gavin (11) and Kira (14).
My classroom is a very student focused environment with learning opportunities that give students many choices to create the best learning conditions for themselves. Students in my class will learn all of the 5th grade standards through exploration, project-based learning, and application of skills in meaningful contributions inside and out of the classroom community.
Classroom discussions and interactions are based on respect. Students are taught to navigate social interactions, respecting the value of every person's perspective and uniqueness.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or for current student parents, the SeeSaw ap works great for keeping in touch.
