I started my elementary (4th grade) teaching career at Corning, KS in the Vermillion, KS school district. (1 yr.) I also taught in the Riley County School District for 3 ½ years (3rd and 4th grade). I started teaching elementary special education in the Clay County Special Education Coop (3 ½ years).
When we moved to Caldwell I started as special education substitute teacher. After completing secondary special education certification at Northwestern Oklahoma State University I became the secondary special education teacher in Caldwell through Sumner County Special Education Services based in Wellington, KS.. I have been employed by Sumner County Special Education Services for more than twenty years. The last 7 years I have been the middle school and high school special education teacher in South Haven, KS and Caldwell , KS.
I am married with two grown married sons. We have 3 grandsons two being 7 years old and one 4 year old. We also have one granddaughter age 5.
I enjoy gardening and mowing in the summer. I also enjoy spending time with my family especially the grandchildren.
