I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this year. This will be my thirty-third year of teaching, my twenty-third year at Wilder Elementary. I feel I've found my dream job, teaching science to fifth graders!
I graduated from Ava High School. I then attended Missouri State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I went back to MSU and earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I spend a part of each summer attending workshops that enable me to remain current on the latest trends in education.
When not teaching I enjoy spending time outdoors. My favorite activities are fly fishing on the White River, spring turkey hunting, snow skiing in Colorado, and scuba diving in the Caribbean.
