I graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English.
I earned my Master’s Degree in English from Wichita State University.
I am also licensed to teach Health Education
I’m beginning my 31st year of teaching, and I can’t believe it!! Prior to teaching at Garden Plain, I taught at Midway-Denton HS, Sedgwick HS, and Valley Center HS.
Since I began teaching at GPHS six years ago, I have taught high school English to sophomores and seniors.
In addition to teaching high school classes, I teach English Composition I and II to qualifying seniors through Hutchinson Community College.
I am also the KAY sponsor.
My class schedule this semester is as follows:
1st block: plan

My husband, Gary, and I live on a 40 acre farm a few miles east of Halstead. Gary is a retired math and social studies teacher and enjoys raising steers, working his hay crop, fishing, and hunting. On my free time, I enjoy reading, thrifting, shopping, and working out.
