My teaching career began in the North Kansas City School District at Winnetonka High School. After having my first child, I felt a need to be closer to home and began teaching at Hall McCarter Junior High in the Blue Springs School District. After having another child, I decided to take a year's leave of absence which grew into what husband has termed "an eight year maternity leave" and we were blessed with another child. I began teaching again after my thrid child had reached school age and had the opportunity to teach in the school my children attended in the Blue Springs School District. I have been with the Blue Springs School District for 19 years have enjoyed the last four years at William Yates Elementary.
My Personal Teaching Motto: "They don't care what you know until they know that you care."
