Role:  World History, AP Human Geography, and Emerging Leaders Facilitator

Before LEAD:  I began my teaching career in mid-Missouri in the New Franklin R-1 School District, where I taught high school social studies and French for five years. When my husband was relocated to the Kansas City area, I came back to my alma mater; the Park Hill School District. For 16 years, I was the Bridges facilitator at Plaza Middle School and loved every minute of it (“Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger).                            

Why I’m at LEAD: I really believe in building relationships with students and that is what LEAD is all about. I also love being around educators that push me to be my best, innovative self. The staff at LEAD are people that I have looked up to throughout my time in Park Hill. I am blessed to work in the best program in the K.C. Northland.

What I’m most looking forward to: It’s going to be difficult for me to choose one thing that I’m looking forward to at LEAD. I’m looking forward to all of it! I love having the ability to be part of something new and innovative, that I know is going to have a tremendous impact on students. Let’s go LEAD!

About me: I have been teaching for 21 years and am happy to be returning for my 22nd! I live with my husband, Lathem - and we have two daughters, Hannah & Sarah. Hannah will be a freshman at Iowa State University this fall and Sarah will be an 8th grader at Congress Middle School. Between our two daughters, we spend a lot of time at choir concerts, dance, and swim  meets. We have quite a few furry friends in our household, as well. Chloe is our 8-year-old dachshund, and Ellie and Meep are our two kitties. When I’m not involved with all of that, I love to investigate the Kansas City area, finding the best “foodie” restaurants available. I’m also a die hard Royals fan - to the bitter end.
