I was born and raised in Seneca, and graduated from Nemaha Valley High school in 2000. After high school, I obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics Education from the University of Kansas (2005) and my Master's in Mathematics from Emporia State University (2015).
I started teaching for Centralia in 2014. My assignments have included 6th grade study skills, 7th grade math, algebra 1, algebra 2, and geometry.
In 2005 I had my first teaching job at Manhattan High School. I was there for three years when an opportunity became available to be closer to home. It was then I signed a contract with Valley Heights High School, and was there for six years.
My husband, Shannon, and I have three children-Meleah, Henry, and William. We reside on a farm south of Summerfield where we have a small cow-calf operation, farm, and own and operate Stallbaumer Dozing.
