Hi! I am so excited to be your student's 4th grade teacher this year! This is my first year teaching at Eudora Elementary and I could not be happier to be a part of the Eudora Elementary School family!
I grew up in a small town in Kansas (Chapman). I currently live in Olathe with my husband Tad. Together we have twins Dayton and Melayna who are 12 years old and in the 7th grade at Oregon Trail Middle School. Melayna enjoys theatre and is on her middle school cheer team. Dayton enjoys being a boy scout, playing video games and will be participating in cross country. My oldest daughter Isabelle attends Emporia State University and is a theatre major. I have two bonus daughters! Taylor lives in Shawnee and works for a printing company in Gardner. Michelle is attending Pittsburgh State University and is pursuing a degree in Elementary Education. We are very blessed!
While pursuing my degree to become an elementary teacher through Emporia State University, I worked part time for my church as the Weekday Childcare Coordinator. I have previously been a school secretary and I have had my own before and after school care program from my home. I have actively participated in my children's classrooms, volunteered in school libraries and been a girl scout leader to 24 little ladies!
I enjoy 80's music, frugal shopping, crafting, the beach or mountains and an ice cold coca cola will always brighten my day! It has been my dream to be an elementary teacher and I am looking forward to a fantastic year with your children!
