I am a wife, mother, teacher and student. I married my best friend several years ago, and together, we have two daughters. I have taught for many years. My first year was spent in Africa where I taught second grade and ninth grade English. From there, I spent several years teaching fifth grade in Kansas City. I loved my time in Kansas City, but moved closer to home to teach seventh grade here at OGMS. While I love teaching, I am so excited to be a student again. I am attending UCM, where I am getting my Master's degree in both school and community counseling. I look forward to connecting with students in a new way!
