About Me
I serve as GT Coordinator/Instructor and as Interventionist, grades 3-5.
I earned my BS in Elementary Education and Middle School English Endorsement from Chadron State College in Chadron, NE. I also earned my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Emphasis in Reading Specialist from Grand Canyon University.
What I love most about working at Rice Elementary: 
The families at Rice are super supportive of their children's education. I also love the staff I get to work with. And, yes, the students at Rice are the "best in the west".
Favorite Children’s Book/Author: 
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline 'L Engle is one of my favorites, however, I love too many children's books to adequately say I have a "favorite".
I grew up near Atkinson, NE on a farm and ranch and I attended a rural school in my K-8 years of school.
I love to teach, sing and act, flower garden, watch movies with my family and walk our chipoo. I especially love to swing on the porch chair and read a good book. When I have the rare chance, I love to win at chess against my son.
A little more about me: 
I live in Windsor with my husband, Doug, and our two amazing teens: Savannah and Jeoff. I own a 3 pound chipoo named Angel--she thinks she is one of the teens.
