I am in my 11th year of teaching. I have been with Kansas City International Academy for all 11 years. I spent my early university years in Warrensburg, MO at the University of Central Missouri and completed my education degree in Springfield at Missouri State University. I am currently seeking my Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language through the University of Central Missouri. My husband and I have 2 dogs that we call our fur babies. Reading and sewing are my passions. I love to play volleyball and go walking at dusk with my husband and dogs. I am very excited this year to see all the changes happening, not only with our school, but with the students in my classroom. They will be making great progress as readers and mathematicians, but also as citizens of the world.
