I grew up in Kansas and went to high school in Dodge City. I have always enjoyed being active and was involved in sports throughout school. My experience in school was very positive due to sports and great teachers.
I started teaching in 1995 and have been at Frenchtown since fall of 2003. My first 8 years were at South High School in Wichita, KS. I have a bachelor's in elementary education from Kansas Newman College and a master's in special education from Emporia State University.
