I have a daughter and a son, which are the light of my life. My daughter is in the 7th grade and my son is in the 3rd grade. We enjoyed many activities together such as; Showing Cattle, 4-H, softball, baseball, basketball, dance, camping, hunting, fishing, skiing, riding trails, gardening, cooking, learning and exploring. We are proud members of the Clark's Fork Trinity Lutheran Church, Bunceton Community Betterment Association, Bunceton Lions Club, Missouri Cattleman Association, and American Angus Association.

I have a strong passion for education and working hard to get what you want. I am a positive individual and strive to reflect and evaluate. I work as a collaborative team player. I work very hard to ensure that the student are in a safe and productive environment.
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 standard based grading and learning objectives. Together as a team we are developing strategies for assessment capable learners through curriculum alignment, individualized student goal setting, and focus. Transparent communication is the key. I believe we need to ensure we give every child the opportunity and tools to succeed in life to become assessment capable learners.
