Education: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Master of Arts in Education, certification in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Special Education


Experience: I have worked as a paraprofessional for 4 years and this will be my first year teaching in my own classroom.


I was born and raised in Springfield until I went to college at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. After college, I moved to St. Louis with my husband where we lived for 7 years. We moved back to the area and settled in Republic 10 years ago. I have worked in the Republic School District for the past 4 years. My husband and I have 2 sons, ages 9 and 11 who have attended Republic since they were in preschool at the Early Childhood Center.
