4th Grade Teacher
I attended SCCC here in Liberal and graduated with my Associates degree and then continued on to study Elementary Education with a minor in English through Newman University. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Education in 2016.
I will be starting my Masters of Education program in the Fall of 2018 through Newman University as well!
I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and was a receipant of the PTK All-Kansas Scholar while attending SCCC.

I am an AVID trained educator and can’t wait to implement these strategies into my classroom this year.
I have received Kagan Structures training as well as Capturing Kids Hearts.
This will be my 2nd year here at MacArthur teaching 4th grade. I am excited to see what this new year will bring for myself and my students. I love seeing what USD 480 has to offer our students as I was also a USD 480 student!
I taught at Eisenhower Middle School for a semester after completing my student teaching. I taught 8th grade Science and it was also new and exciting!
My husband, Jonathan and I were married in 2012. We have 2 children. Jayden, our daughter is 8 and in 3rd grade this year here at MacArthur. Our son, Jeffrey, is 6 and will be a 1st grader here as well. We love to do things as a family and my children think it’s absolutely awesome that their Mom teaches at the same school they go to. (I think it’s pretty awesome as well, because I know at some point it won’t be cool anymore!)
Let me start by saying I love turtles!!! I enjoy spending time with my family the most, but we enjoy a variety of things. I am a huge sports fan. College sports are by far my favorite and of course, I love the OSU Cowboys! Football and baseball are my top 2 sports, but volleyball and gymnastics are neck in neck. We love to go bowling as a family on the weekends to unwind and have quality time together. My husband stays very busy with work during the week, so we try to make weekends all about family.
I love to read books: murder mysteries and teaching books are my favorite. I also love to scrapbook and savor all of our memories that we make together. Have I mentioned that I love turtles?!!
