About Me

Educational History:

I attended Lee-Hamilton Elementary in Ferguson, Missouri, from kindergarten through fifth grade! My family relocated to Festus, Missouri, where I attended school until I graduted from high school in 2014. I went on to Southeast Missouri State University and obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Education, specializing in elementary education. I graduated from SEMO on May 12, 2018.

Current Position:

This will be my first year teaching! I did my student teaching in Cape Girardeau in a third grade classroom. I am very excited to be a bulldog!

Family Information:

I have two older sisters, both of whom are married. One lives not far from our parents in St. Louis and the other lives in Lexington, Kentucky. I have two nephews, one on Earth and one in heaven. 

I am engaged to be married to a wonderful man named D.J. and we live together in Cape Girardeau with our one year old beagle/heeler mix, Lulabelle. We are getting married in April of 2019 in Eureka, Missouri.

Personal Information:

I am a huge fan of all things Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Marvel Comics, and Downton Abbey. I adore reading and my students can tell you that I’m almost always reading something! One of my life goals is to write a novel and have it published. I have a few short stories written and I used to write for The Odyssey Online.
