I grew up in the Wichita area and after high school, I attended Butler Community College. Go Grizzlies! I finished my college degree at Wichita State University and I am currently working on my Master’s Degree from Fort Hays University. Before coming to Andover, I taught middle school English for three years.
I’ve known since elementary school that I wanted to be a teacher. While in high school, I had a fantastic teacher who inspired me to write. It was in high school that I decided I wanted to become an English teacher. I believe that every person can find a love for reading when they are introduced to the right book.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family. You can usually find us at football games in the fall. We are huge K-State and Chiefs fans. We spend a lot of time at the lake in the summer. When I’m not at the lake or watching football, I love traveling and being active.
