Degrees and Certifications:
I received my bachelor's degree in elementary and special education from Lindenwood University of Missouri in 2001 and completed the Master's program in 2003 with an emphasis in reading. In 2009, I also earned my educational specialist degree from Lindenwood University.
I have been married for over 19 years to my wonderful husband Kevin, and we have six beautiful children. We enjoy traveling and playing kickball in the backyard. Our children play multiple sports and we adore every moment of watching them grow. I grew up in a large family which is why I think family is such a huge part of a child's education.
I believe every child has the ability to learn and be successful in the school setting. I believe that all students in a classroom should be treated with fairness and respect. As a special educator, it is my job to provide opportunties for the success of all my students. I believe in making school a positive experience for every child.
