I have been blessed to work in our district for 9 years. My experience began in a kindergarten classroom, then I moved into a 1st grade classroom, following this I moved into a position within our Title services. Currently, I am beginning my 3rd year as our building Literacy Coach and enjoy spending time in our K-5 classrooms providing literacy support.

I graduated from Pittsburg State University with my Education degree in 2003, I completed my Literacy Coach training through UALR in 2016 and will complete a Masters in Administration degree from PSU in May 2018. 

I have lived in Girard for 35 years and look forward to many more!   :)
