I am an Iowan and a Hawkeye.  I worked in human resources for MCI Long Distance, was an Intake Coordinator for a private practice psychology clinic, and worked in an psychological animal behavioral lab before getting my Masters of Arts in Teaching to become an English and Psychology teacher.  I have lived in Iowa, New Mexico, and Colorado before moving to Kansas.
I am an avid reader and movie watcher.  I grew up on science-fiction and fantasy novels.  My personal hobbies are cooking, playing Magic: the Gathering, playing Pokemon Go, and walking for health.

This is my 22nd year as a educator. I have taught at University of Iowa, University of Missouri Kansas City, and KCKCC.  I have taught  Etymology, Speech, sophomore English, IB junior and senior English, ACT Prep, Humanities, IB Psychology, and Intro to Psychology, Yearbook, and French.  I am currently teaching Sabre 101 this year.

I have also coached Boys Swim, Boys Tennis, Debate, Forensics, JV Cheer, Varsity Cheer, adviser for Student Council, was Vice-President of Sumner's Parent Teacher Student Association, and sponsor for Senior Board and Freshman class.  I am currently the IDP representative for the building, School Loop Administrator, Infinite Campus Coach, Sumner Facebook Administrator, and Class Sponsor for 8th Grade.


My Philosophy

My philosophy in life is...I will try anything once.  If I do not like it, I will try a second time just to make sure.
