Welcome to my home page! We have a busy year planned as we will be covering Reading, Literature, Writing, Language and Speaking and Listening skills this year. This is my eighth year back at AMS full time and 12th year teaching middle school language arts. This year I am teaching two sections of 7th grade language arts, one 8th grade language arts, and my MTSS reading group. My plan time is from 9:30-10:30.
I have a Bachelor’s of Secondary Education/English from Kansas State University and a Master’s in Human Resources from Ottawa University. I’m originally from Smith Center, Kansas, but I have lived in Andover since 2001. I have three children that currently attend Andover Central High School, Andover Central Middle School and Meadowlark. This year last summer, I got married and gained two more bonus children who also attend ACHS and Meadowlark. With five kids at home, all of whom are very involved in both school and out of school activities, we are always on the go, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I look forward to getting to know your children this year!
