2nd Grade Teacher
I graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education.
I have also obtained certification for my State of Kansas teaching license and my ESOL endorsement.
This will be my 8th year teaching at CDS and with the Goddard school district. I have also taught 1st and 3rd grade here at CDS, so I have a great understanding of where your child needs to be as they progress through the year! I am super excited to be teaching in 2nd grade with your kiddo this year!
Before coming to Clark Davidson, I completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom in the Maize school district. I have had significant experience in the classroom as a substitute teacher as well. Prior to teaching, I was a full-time, stay-at-home mom for 17 years. I also accumulated several years of early childhood classroom experience, as a teacher and director/owner of my own preschool/child care center.
I have been married to Brian, my high school sweetheart, for 29 years. We have four children; our daughter, Taylor, works on the management team at Primrose in Wichita. She and her husband, Jake, have a 16 month old son named Kendall. Our son, Parker, is employed with the main post office hub in Wichita. Our daughter, Haylee, is 17, and she is a senior in high school. Our son, Hunter, is 14 years old; he’s in 8th grade this year.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family…..watching my son’s football and baseball games, going on road trips, playing board games, going with my girls to get our nails done, or just enjoying some time visiting together! I like reading a variety of children's literture and books about U.S. history, I like to travel and visit new places, and I love to watch movies!
