I teach College Prep English, Creative Writing, and English 1 here at Hazelwood West High School. I have been in the district for 19 years. I think West is the place I was truly meant to be. I started out as an elementary teacher at Lusher and Lawson. I then moved to Northwest Middle, where I taught 6th and 8th grade Communication Arts. My journey in the Hazelwood School District has been a rewarding one. I have been fortunate to have built many new friendships with families and relationships with incredible students over the years. My adventure at West is one that has been amazing. I have so many students that I already know from previously teaching younger grades, that it makes coming to work each day a blessing. In my free time I spend time with my family and friends, attend sporting events, jet ski, tube, go antiquing, and play co-ed softball. I am a mother of 3 and they keep me busy! I also enjoy freelance writing and music trivia.
