BS in Education with Endorsements
in Physical Education and Coaching
Chadron State College
I love teaching 5th and 6th grades! I grew up in Wyoming and graduated from Lingle/Ft. Laramie High School. I attended Chadron State College, where I received my BS in Elementary Education with Endorsements in Physical Education and Coaching. While at college, I met and married my husband, Chris. We have two girls. Keely lives in Kearney and made me a grandma to two precious grandkids, Jayce and Bexley. Ashley is a high school senior. My stepson, Alex, and his wife live in Douglas, WY with their two precious boys, Owen and Samuel. In my free time, I have always enjoyed going to my children's activities. When possible, I love glamping, sitting by the fire and enjoying the outdoors.
Philosophy of Education
"I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message." -- Steve Irwin When a teacher shows her excitement about learning, it helps "hook" her students into the learning process. I believe that it is important for a teacher to get to know her students, to make connections with them. It is through these connections that a teacher is able to help her students and push them to achieve their potential.
