Dear Parents, Students, and other interested parties: 


I would like to introduce myself as a high school special education teacher as well as junior high girls’ basketball and JH track coach. In addition I also help students with employment opportunities through the work experience program as well as an Assistant Special Education Director. Also, I spend time volunteering with the Booster Club so if you need some Midget gear or have any ideas let me know. It is hard to believe as a graduate of Putnam Co R1 Schools that I will already be entering my 17th year of teaching 15 of those years spent teaching in this district. A little about myself I grew up in Putnam County then attended the University of Missouri and obtained an agriculture degree, but I decided education is what I really wanted to do so I enrolled in a teacher's certification program and now have completed my masters/specialists program through William Woods University. I have four kids Hollister, Cabryn, Piper, and Ridley. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching and going to sporting events, and showing livestock. One of the main reasons I enjoy teaching is the interaction with the students and helping them learn and achieve in the classroom and athletics.

If you ever have questions for me feel free to get ahold of me. Thanks and looking forward to another year.
