About Me

Educational History:

I graduated High School from Elkhart High School in Elkhart, Kansas in 1996.  After getting the feel for college life I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2002 with a B.G.S. in History.  Better known in my family circle as the degree for unemployment - meaning I couldn't really do squat with a bachelor's in history, much as I love history.  After just over a decade hiatius from college life that included a marriage and two children, I graduated from Fort Hays State University in 2014 with B.S.E. in Early Childhood Unified.

Current Position:

Just when I think I have learned to live, life changes… Hugh Prather

In the words of Winston Churchill… “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”  

Previous Position:

Prior to being a teacher myself I was raised by a teacher, who was raised by a teacher.  My first experience with hands-on early childhood development started in 2005 when my oldest son was born.  I had the amazing opportunity to be a stay-at-home parent for nine years before entering the classroom.  Since then I have helped my sister-in-law welcome into this world two wonderful children, both of whom have Autism.  My niece also has severe ADHD and ID and my nephew has Apraxia.  I am blessed to have them in my life because they help me grow as an individual, which helps me to become a better teacher.

Family Information:

I have been married to my husband, Steven, for 13 years.  He is currently the Director of Plant Operations and Environmental Services at Russell Regional Hospital.  We have two boys, Alphie who is in 6th grade at RMS and Grayson who is in 4th grade at BES.  We have two family dogs, Captain and Jack.

Personal Information:

When I am not teaching or preparing to teach I like to be with my family and friends whether we are at home or out and about.  If I am lucky enough to have a few minutes to myself, you will find me reading or playing piano... maybe even mowing the yard!
