Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!


This is my twelfth year of teaching.  I spent my first 2 years teaching 6th grade at Belle Ryan Elementary.  I made the move to Chandler View and this is my 10th year teaching 4th grade. I earned my Bachelor's degree from UNO and a Master's degree from Concordia University.   I am married and I have 2 daughters.  Delaney is a senior this year and is busy as a Monarch cheerleader. Jenna is in sixth grade and is busy playing soccer for the Springfield Soccer Club.  My husband and I enjoy home improvement projects, spending time with our daughters, walking our dogs, and watching movies.  We also have furry children to care for.  Scarlett and Lincoln are our dogs and Apollo is our cat.  We are a very busy family!
