I am the literacy/instructional coach for Topeka High, but before that I taught English at Washburn Rural High School and Landon Middle School. This is my 3rd year at Topeka High. I grew up in Tecumseh, KS and graduated from Shawnee Heights High School, then obtained my BA in English Education at Washburn University. I have a daughter, Parker (15), and a son, Jack (9) and two dogs, a rat terrier named Cora and a miniature dachsund named Piglet. My hobbies include reading, writing, antiquing, and being outdoors. I also love going to the movies or watching them at home.
