About me...

Thanks for visiting my webpage!  Let me tell you a little about ME!



  • I grew up on a farm in Kansas - my dad raises crops and cattle.  My mom works at a bank.  I have one brother, Ben, who is an agronomist and a farmer.
  • I went to Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS for college.  I played basketball there and studied Chemistry.  My degree is in Chemistry Education with an endorsement in MS science.
  • This is my 8th year teaching science.  I've taught grades 6th through 12th.  My very first teaching job was in Orlando, FL!  I used to teach at Foster MIddle School a few years ago.  I moved away to Omaha, NE for a few years and then took a break from teaching to stay home with my 3 daughters.  Now I'm back in the classroom at Foster and I'm so excited!  
  • My husband, Joel, is a Middle School principal - he works at a private school here in Tulsa.
  • I have 3 daughters:  Olivia is 8 and going into the 3rd grade, Delaney is 4 and is in preschool, and Jillian is almost 2.  They keep me busy!
  • Some of my hobbies include:  reading, doing crafts, playing the piano, gardening, decorating cakes, and scrapbooking.
