I am so excited to be a Billy Mills Middle School Cougar!
This is my third year as Gifted Education Teacher at Billy Mills Middle School but my tenth year teaching in Lawrence Public Schools. Before joining the Billy Mills team, I worked at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, was a stay-at-home mom to my two amazing sons, taught middle and high school gifted education in another district, and spent six years as the gifted facilitator at Prairie Park, Broken Arrow, Langston Hughes, and New York Elementary Schools. I look forward to working with sixth, seventh, and eighth graders at BMMS, renewing relationships with former students, building new connections, and facilitating challenging projects in my students' areas of strength and passion.
