Degrees and Certifications:
K-2nd Grade Education Specialist
I see the opportunity to educate children at home as a wonderful experience and a blessing to families. I bring to Lawrence Virtual School eight years of classroom experience, as well as ten years of home educating my own children. I have taught my own children using the first through eighth grade LVS curriculum.
I hold a Bachelor’s of Education degree from Augustana College and a master’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado. I am currently working on coursework to obtain a certification as a reading specialist. When not working with our Lawrence Virtual School families, I enjoy spending time with my family’s activities and playing my trumpet in several local bands. I live in Eudora, KS, with my husband and two daughters.
This is my twelfth year working as an Education Specialist; I also manage schoolwide communications and help with parent-led enrichment and field trips. I enjoy seeing the growth and changes that happen through the year with the students and families with whom I work.
