This is my eighth year at Kincaid, and am so proud to be a part of this terrific school community!
I married my Jayhawk college sweetheart, Doug, 41 years ago, and we have been blessed with a daughter and 2 grandchildren, whom we adore beyond measure! I was an Army Brat whose home state is Colorado. I’ve lived in 11 states, Germany, Japan and Okinawa—before moving here 34 years ago.
In the last 25 years, I have taught kindergarten, first, second and third grades. I have a master’s in early childhood education from KSU, a bachelor’s in journalism from Kansas University, and a gifted endorsement. I love teaching all subjects, but am especially passionate about writing, reading, and life science. I am honored to have been 2005 Walmart Teacher of the Year, and a presenter at two national reading and writing conferences. What I love most of all about teaching is children! I’m happy to get up each morning for school and have a learning adventure with the little ones.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family, read, work on creative projects of different types, listen to music, workout (biking and yoga), enjoy the great outdoors and travel!
