I love working with the diverse and engaging community of learners at McKelvey! I attended Parkway Schools growing up, I'm a proud Parkway graduate, and I reside in the Parkway School District. I graduated from the University of Missouri, and I received my Master's degree and K-12 Gifted Certification from Maryville University. Upon graduation, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade in the Rockwood School District. Since 2006, I have been teaching MOSAICS at McKelvey.
When I'm not at school, I have a full and busy life with my family. My favorite hobbies are reading, cooking, baking, gardening, volunteering at church, and staying physically active. I also love learning new things right alongside my students.
