    Years of teaching in CUSD4:

    I am starting my 16th year with the district.

    Years of total teaching experience: I have been teaching 27 years and 25 of those have been with kindergartners! 

    About Me:  I have lived in Columbia for 17 years with my husband, Keith, and our son, Brett.  We also have a spoiled golden retriever, Ellie!  I am originally from Peoria, Illinois but have lived in the St. Louis area my entire married life, 27 years!  I enjoy reading, gardening, and meeting for coffee with friends!   Wanting to be a teacher since 8th grade, I still start each day with a smile and optimism.  I hope to share with your child my love for books and learning.  Here's to a wonderful year working together for your child's kindergarten success.
