5th Grade Teacher

1st Year at HT


Education: Master's Degree from Baker University in Education. 

Bachelor's Degree from Washburn University in Elementary Education.


Work Experience:  This will be my 20th year in education.  I taught in Topeka in the Auburn Washburn School District where  I taught 2nd and 3rd Grade.  I also have 17 years experience in the SMSD where I taught 2nd, 4th and 6th at Broken Arrow Elementary School. 


Teaching Philosophy:  I believe all children can learn and failure is not an option in my classroom.  It is my job to meet the academic needs of all of my students by challenging  them in all areas.   To have them work on critical thinking, problem solving, writing, math and group work.  I am hoping to show them that creativity and fun are parts of learning as well as encouraging their love of life long learning.

Passions and Interests:  I have 4 amazing children who I am so Blessed to have.  I love spending time with them outdoors and growing deeper in our Faith.  We all enjoy watching K-State Sports together with our family and friends.  I also love to read Biography's and write letters to people!

Favorite Scripture:  Phillippians 4:13  " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. "
