Philosophy of Education:

    Every child deserves the opportunity to learn and grow.   This declaration resonates at my core and guides my beliefs about education.    Education is a complex web of interaction between teacher, student, family, and environment.  I will strive to provide the opportunity for learning to blossom by employing multiple approaches and allowing variance in the instructional pace.  There will never be a one-size-fits-all approach to learning in my classroom. 

     Aside from ensuring that I am a well-rounded and knowledgeable teacher through continued training and professional development, my primary responsibility is to recognize and honor my students’ rights as members of an educational community.      

     As a student in my classroom, you have the right to:

            Participate actively in learning. 

            Individualized instruction that meets your needs.

            Access to a wide range of instructional materials.

            Instruction in strategies that will aid your development as a student.

            Find success and enjoyment at school.

     As a family of a student in my classroom, you have the right to:

            Be involved in the education of your child.

            Open and frequent communication with me.

            Inform me of the successes and struggles of your child.

            Help me provide an atmosphere of success for your child.

     I believe we are laying a foundation for success, not only in the classroom but in life as well.   I am optimistic that all of my students can walk away from my classroom with an enthusiasm for learning that endures and reflects the empowerment that we have discovered within them and built around them.

Family Information:

      Kansas has been my home for the majority of my life.  I’ve lived in many cities around the state including Goodland, Salina, Hutchinson, and Garden City.  In 1991, I settled in Beloit, Kansas, to raise a family.  During this time, I was lucky enough to be a stay at home mom until both my sons were in elementary school.  

     My two sons are a large part of my life and motivation to be my best self.  My oldest son is Brad.  He is a United States Marine and is stationed in Yuma, Arizona.   My youngest son is Brendon.  He is taking college classes part time and living in North Carolina.  

     In 2003, I returned to college to earn my teaching degree from Kansas Wesleyan University.  I have taught 5th grade, first grade, and sixth grade social studies.  During that time, I went back to school to earn my Master’s degrees in Gifted Education and Educational Administration. I believe a person should never stop learning.

     Cooking, reading, crocheting, and traveling are all passions of mine, but there never seems to be enough time to do it all.  Most of my time is poured into my classroom and students, and I truly believe I have the best job in the world. There is nothing more inspiring than watching students grow and learn. Every year is a new journey with students that drive their own path.  Let’s buckle up and enjoy the ride.
