About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Yates Center High School in 2006. While there I had multiple experiences with babysitting, tutoring classmates, and working as a teacher’s aide in the local school district. During my free time, I was a member of the varsity golf team and played trombone in the high school band.

I graduated from K-State in 2010, with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics. During my time at K-State, I was involved in the Kansas State University Marching Band and the KNEA-Student Program. Several times I volunteered at the Flint Hills Bread Basket delivering commodities, preparing food for the Backpack Program, and working the Thanksgiving dinners.

Current Position:

I started working for the Burlington Elementary School in 2013. My first experience within the school district was working as a 2nd grade teacher. After three years, I was asked to move up a grade and become a 3rd grade teacher!

Previous Position:

I started my education career in the summer of 2010. My first teaching experience happened while I was studying abroad in Guatemala City, Guatemala. While there I was given the opportunity to teach English to fourth grade students. In August, I returned to the United States to complete my student teaching for my elementary education degree before graduating from Kansas State University.

After graduation in December, I worked as a substitute teacher in the local school districts. The following school year, I was offered a fifth grade teaching position with Kinsley-Offerle School District where I worked for two years. In addition to teaching, I also worked with students after school two days a week to help students maximize their learning.

Personal Information:

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to KSU games, fishing, camping, and playing golf.
