I am starting my 27th year of teaching at Conway Springs. I have 3 daughters and a new granddaughter who I absolutely adore. I graduated from Wichita State with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and then completed my Masters of Education at Baker University. I am excited for a new school year to begin!
