3rd Grade Teacher
I have taught at Robinson Elementary for the last three years. In 2019, I taught second grade. In 2020, I took over distance learning in the district and worked with all of the distance learners K-5 online. This year will be my first year in third grade. I am so excited!
In 2016, I student taught at Ewalt Elementary under the mentorship of Shelly Dunsmoor. After my student teaching was completed, I taught first grade at Saint Mary Catholic School in Newton. I taught in Newton for three years.
I am initially from Kansas City, KS. I was born and raised in Wyandotte County along with my three sisters. My family is very close knit so I try to visit as often as I can.
My husband Tanner and I met at our community college in 2012 and were then married in June of 2017. We had our daughter, Jessica in May of 2018. This last year, Jessica was diagnosed with a rare type of liver cancer and received treatment at St. Jude in Memphis. She received a liver transplant and is currently living, cancer-free!
Aside from us three humans, we also have two dogs who we love very much! Their names are Cooper and Kona.
Aside from teaching, I have many hobbies! Some of those hobbies are reading, writing, crafting, fishing, spending time with my family, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
My favorite meal is grilled steak with a really big and soft loaded baked potato… YUM! For snacking, I enjoy Reeses Peanut Butter Cups as well as Taki’s and Hot Cheetos. My favorite types of drinks are Diet Dr. Pepper, black coffee, and ice cold water.
I love watching the Kansas City Chiefs as well as the Kansas City Royals. My favorite college teams to watch are KU and Texas Longhorns.
