Title/Reading Recovery Teacher
I earned my BS degree in Elementary Education from Fort Hays State University in 1994. I completed my Reading Recovery certification in 2012. This will be my 29th year in education!
The 2022-2023 school year will be my 29th year of teaching. Of those 29 years, 18 years were spent teaching first grade! Eleven years ago I was trained in Reading Recovery and made the switch to a full time Title 1/Reading Recovery teacher eight years ago. I now teach K-4 Title 1 Reading and Math, with emphasis on the school MTSS groups. I also work with Reading Recovery students during the day.
My husband, Mark, and I have made our home in the Burlington area for 24 years. My oldest daughter Ashlynn,is in grad school at Rockhurst University. Caydence is a freshman at Emporia State University. Kaison is a 4th grader at BES.
I spend much of my “free time” attending my children’s activities. My kiddos are my pride and joy! I also enoy spending time with my goldendoodle, Thor!
