Bio

I grew up in the small town of Crocker, MO and attended the same school from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  After high school I attended Missouri Valley College in Marshall, MO on a golf scholarship.  I later transferred to Drury University in Springfield, MO where I graduated in 2013 with my Bachelors in Exercise Physiology.  I received my Masters from University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, MO.  This will be my fourth year teaching Early Childhood Special Education in the Warsaw R-IX School District.  I have experience teaching ECSE, Elementary and High School Health and Physical Education, and Adapted Physical Education at the Missouri Schools for the Severely Disabled.  I have always enjoyed working with the youngest students. I love teaching and seeing students learn and grow.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy being outdoors, playing golf, and spending time with friends and family.  I am looking forward to another great year at South Elementary!
