I graduated high school in 2009 from Jackson Senior High School. I then attended Southeast Missouri State University where I pursued a degree in elementary education with an emphasis in social studies. I graduated in December of 2012.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Southeast Missouri State University. I am certified to teach grades 1-6 in the state of Missouri.
I joined the Southeast Elementary team for the 2018-2019 school year as a first grade teacher. I am excited to be starting my second year in first grade with the Sikeston school district!
After graduating from Southeast Missouri State University, I taught 4th grade for three years at Cape Christian School in Cape Girardeau beginning in 2013. I then served as part-time director of student services for one year. I stayed home for a year full time with my son before joining the Southeast team as a first grade teacher in 2018.
I married my husband, Blake, in 2013. We currently live in Cape Girardeau with our two children; Caleb, who is 4 years old, and Anna Grace who was just born in June 2019. We also have a havanese dog named Jack.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy cooking, reading, golfing, and traveling. Some of the places I’ve enjoyed traveling to are Hawaii, the Grand Canyon, and Guatemala. My family also loves going to the beach in Florida. I also enjoy watching baseball and golf. My favorite baseball team is the St. Louis Cardinal’s!
