Degrees and Certifications:
Hi all! I teach second and third grade Title Math and Reading at New York. This is my third year at New York. I have been teaching for 13 years now. I have experienced a lot of different jobs within the education field and have enjoyed each one. I've taught first grade, fourth grade, library media, technology, and title math.
I have my bachelor's degree in education from Kansas State University. Go Wildcats!! I have my master's degree in education with a Library Media Specialist endorsement from Fort Hays State University. I am currently working on my second master's degree as a Reading Specialist with Grand Canyon University.
I am originally from Kansas and have lived all over the Kansas City metro. I lived in Chicago for two summers, otherwise Ive been a Kansas native all my life. In my spare time, I have three wonderful kids of my own that I spend lots of time with. I have two boys that are 9 & 7 and a girl that is 3 years old. We live in Olathe, Kansas and my kids go to school in the Olathe school district. My kids and I love to go on adventures, play board games, do art/craft projects, and have Mariokart tournaments together. I also have two kitties named Gizmo and Felix.
For fun I love to go see live music, watch movies, cook, read, travel, do arts and crafts, and compete in trivia contests. I love the outdoors and anything adventurous.
Looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year!
