I live on a farm outside of Bunceton, with my wonderful family. My husband is a farmer/rancher. He has lived here all his life and he is also a Bunceton Alumni. I have a daughter and a son, which are the light of my life. My daughter is in the 6th grade and my son is in the 2nd grade. We enjoyed many activities together as they both enjoy Showing Cattle, 4-H and Clover Kids, Softball, Baseball, Basketball, Dance, hunting, fishing, riding trails, gardening, cooking, learning, volunteering, and exploring. We are proud members of the Clark's Fork Trinity Lutheran Church, Zion Lutheran School, Bunceton Community Betterment Association, Bunceton Lions Club, Missouri Cattleman Association, and American Angus Association.
I have been in education for 14 years. I began my teaching profession as an Middle School/ High School Agricultural Educator for 4 years, School Counselor K-12 for 4 years, Kindergarten Educator for 2 1/2 years, and School Principal K-12 for 3 1/2 years. The past 10 years I have been at Cooper County R-4 in many roles and have learned so much. I have obtained an Associates of Arts Degree from State Fair Community College, Bachelors of Education from the University of Central Missouri, Masters of School Administration from William Woods University, Masters of School Counseling from Stephen's College, and an Education Specialist in Administration Degree from William Woods University. I have a strong passion for education and working hard for what every individual student needs. I am a positive individual and strive to reflect and evaluate. I work as a collaborative team player.
My mission is to develop a strong foundation for the students, parents, staff, and community through building partnerships. I will work hard to ensure that the standards are being met within each grade level and subject area through subject learning targets, projects, standard based grading, and curriculum mapping. I believe we need to ensure we give every child the opportunity and tools to succeed in life.
