Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am a sixth grade teacher at WMS on Team Rain. Along with Mrs. Bowen and Mrs. Neider, I teach an Advisory class, a Guided Studies class, and one third of Team Rain's students Language Arts. I also teach Social Studies, which is based on ancient civilizations of the world. I teach Social Studies to all of the students on Rain. Being here at West Middle School is great, and I truly enjoy helping my students learn to explore and appreciate these subjects.
My experience includes a bachelors and masters degree from KU and over a decade of teaching experience in the Lawrence public schools. I moved here to West after six years at Langston Hughes Elementary where I also taught sixth grade. Before I returned to Lawrence to teach and raise a family, I was also lucky enough to have spent a year teaching in Japan. I love to learn and teach about learning!
