I love being in education because kids of all ages are inspiring to me.  The sense of hope and purity they have encourages me to try to be the educator they deserve.  I feel so blessed to be back in the JACS system because I feel like it is a gift that God has given me to help these children grow in knowledge and faith.

I love spending time with my family!   I have 2 beautiful daughters, an awesome son-in-law, and an angel son in heaven.  My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for 29 years. We are huge Razorback fans and spend time cheering our Hogs.  I also love my fur babies and grandpup!  I am passionate about educating others about mental illness and serve on the board of Joplin NAMI.
