Why did you choose to work with children?
I started working with kids when I began babysitting at 10 years old. I also grew up helping my preschool teacher mom. Teaching was a natural choice for me!

Where did you go to college?
I went to University of Kansas. I am an avid Jayhawk basketball fan. There is no better place to watch basketball than Allen Field House!

What is your favorite noise?
I have a tie - waves hitting the sand & wind blowing through pine trees in the mountains.

What is your favorite board game?
Around our house the favorite game is Monopoly. We have several different versions. I love to spend time with my husband and daughters playing together.

What is the funniest thing a student has ever said to you?
This is a tough one! One of the best things about being a teacher is enjoying the things that kids say! My most recent funny was a note I received which said, "You are the beast teacher!" It made my day!
