Hello! I am beginning my 28th year of teaching, and love to de-stress with the outdoors, cycling, gardening, and music! I graduated from University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1993 with my Bachelor's in Elementary and Special Education. I completed a Master's Degree in 1998 in Guidance and Counseling, Mental Health in Schools, at Mizzou; and have a few more classes to complete Educational Specialist- Leadership & Policy Analysis, also at Mizzou. I have a son, who is in the Navy and currently deployed with Marines in Australia; and a beautiful daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. I enjoy spending time with my husband, dogs, and family, and love to travel.
