"The friendly face of knowledge acquisition"


I am proud to be a Cougar and serve the students and staff of South High.  I joined the staff in 2007, and I taught social studies for ten years.  I obtained my library media specialist endorsement from Fort Hays State, a Masters from Rockhurst University, and an undergraduate degree from Baker University.  Although, I have an affinity for the Kansas Jayhawks (Rock Chalk)--especially during basketball season.

 My husband and I have two boys who keep me busy outside of school, and I love reading my boys classic children’s stories and finding new books to read to them.  One our favorite places to visit continues to be our wonderful public library.  

 My favorite pastimes are reading, baking, traveling, and spending time with family.  I'm currently reading, Concrete Rose  by: Angie Thomas and A Dog's Purpose by: W. Bruce Cameron.
