I started my teaching career at Maize Vermillion School in Maize Kansas. I taught there for only three years before I decided to stay at home and raise my own family of three. This will be my twenty-fourth year of teaching for the Goddard School District.
My husband, Robert, was a Science teacher at the Goddard High School. He retired in May of 2015 after 35 years of teaching to pursue another career. We have three children, Lindsay age 35 (married to Joel), Blake age 34(married to Kate), and Laura age 34 (married to Alex).
Lindsay and Joel have a boy named Luke, who turned eight in May, and twin girls, Maddie and Emma, who will turn six in December! Lindsay is the Early Literacy Coordinator for the Ark City District. Her husband, Joel, is the Camp Director for Camp Horizon in Ark City. Blake is currently teaching Chemistry and Physics for Eisenhower High School in Goddard. Kate was working at a hospital, as their nutritionist, but has put her career on hold to stay at home with their children. Blake and Kate have twin boys, Elliot and Gabriel, who will turn six in December, and Aidan who will turn four in January!! Laura was working for a company called Robot Zone, but she is currently working with her husband, Alex. Alex and Laura own Gottlob Lawn and Landscape LLC and Prairie Outfitters and Excursions LLC in Winfield, Kansas.
