Although I was born in Saint Louis, Missouri, I have lived in Lawrence since 1960.
I have been married for 32 years to my husband Brian. We have two grown children: Sean who lives in the Chicago area, and my daughter Kelly and her husband Chris who live here in Lawrence. Some of my interests include listening to music, bowling, reading, and gardening.
This is my 18th year in the district and my 14th year at Sunflower Elementary. My first ten years I was a special education paraeducator. I graduated from the University of Kansas with an elementary education degree and a Masters degree in Special Education. This is my eighth year as a resource room teacher, and it is truly my dream job! I believe that all children possess many gifts and I learn something new from my students every day.
