Welcome to FSE Kindergarten! I am so excited to be your child's teacher!
This is my 11th year teaching the BEST grade in Elementary school! I graduated from Lindenwood University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, then later got my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Webster University. I worked in Tampa, Florida for my first 3 years of teaching before moving back to Missouri and teaching for the Blue Springs School District.
My husband, John, also works at FSE in 2nd Grade. We obviously value education and love introducing our students to the excitement of learning! We have a 3 year old son, Grant, and a 1 1/2 year old daughter, Eloise, who keeps us busy and laughing outside of school.
When not at school, we mostly enjoy being together as a family! We love going on walks, riding bikes, baking treats, dancing in the kitchen, visiting seasonal KC treasures and reading together! We also love cheering on our KC baseball and football teams!
Although being away from my own kids during the day can be difficult, teaching your children is what I truly enjoy doing! Learning has always been my passion and my favorite thing about Kindergarten is seeing my students get that same fire in them! I am going to be challenging your student this year and I know that they are going to rise to that challenge! They will become writers, scientists, readers, and critical thinkers! They will learn what it means to be a great friend, help others, work together and be a part of a team as well! We are all in for a treat as we watch the kids learn and grow throughout the year!
Please know that I am available to you as we work together for your child! Thank you for sharing your little one with me daily! I am truly honored!
