Welcome to the Jungle!
I'm looking forward to another great year in 4th grade! I am a second year teacher and this will be my third year as a Greyhound. I feel very privileged to be a a part of the Sweet Springs R-7 family. I am originally from California, MO. My family includes my dad who works for Central Electric Power Cooperative in Jefferson City, my mom who recently retired from 33 years of teaching, and my younger brother who is a P.E. teacher and coach. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri in December 2009 with degrees in early childhood education and elementary education. After graduation, I became a substitute teacher and kindergarten tutor for the Warrensburg R-6 school district. For 3 years, I worked as a paraprofessional at Warrensburg Middle School as well as a homebound tutor for the district. In March 2014, I received my certification in special education. In my spare time I enjoy babysitting, dogsitting, attending sporting events, and spending time with family and friends.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year. You can send a note, call the school, or come in to visit. My plan time is from 8:10-9:00 daily or by appointment before or after school. My goal is to help your child have a successful school experience. Thank you for sharing your child with me!
