5th Grade ELA
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.
The 2019-2020 school year will be my second year teaching.
I recently married a wonderful man named D.J., and we live together in Sikeston with our dog, Lula.
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. My oldest sister has three sons. My husband and I also have a niece and a nephew on his side.
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.
