A Little About Me

     I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in December of 2006.  Upon graduation, I taught fourth grade Communication Arts at Blanchard Elementary.  I then moved to Clippard Elementary and have been here ever since!  I have also earned my Master's degree in Technology Integration in the Classroom, as well as my Library Media Specialist certification.

Peyton is 6months old! WOW!

     My hometown is Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. (Did you know that this was the first town settled west of the Mississippi River?)  My parents still live in Ste. Genevieve.  I also have a sister who is an OBGYN (she delivers babies) at St. Francis Medical Center, as well as a brother who is in the army reserves and works on the railroad.  My husband, Kyle works at Drury Company, and helps businesses get roofs put on their buildings.  This past February we had our first child, Peyton.  He is growing fast and so much fun to play with!



This is our dog, Bailey (the lab).

       We will get to know each other better throughout the year.  I can't wait to find out what some of your favorite things are!  A few of my favorite things are the colors turquoise, pink, and purple; spending time outdoors; dogs; flowers, spending time with family/friends, deer hunting, gardening, canning, and traveling.  During the summer I love to sit around a campfire, and go swimming, fishing, and camping .
