I have been teaching Gifted Education for 22 years to date (2020)! I also have experience as an administrator (elementary school vice principal). I have many titles, but the most special are wife, mom, teacher and aunt. I have three sons. I love teaching in the FOCUS Program and I love working with gifted students! I have been teaching in the FOCUS Program for 11 years and am looking forward to many more! I am an alumni of Lincoln College Preparatory Academy (KCMO), Rockhurst College (KCMO) and the University of Missouri, Columbia (MU)! I am excited about this journey that we call life!
