Extra Curricular: Scholar's Bowl Coach
I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Ft. Hays State University and a Master's in Gifted Education from Emporia State University. My teaching career began in USD 501 at the elementary level in 1988. I then taught Language Arts, Choir, and Gifted at the Middle School level. In 2003, I moved to my current position as Gifted Facilitator at Topeka High School. Most of my spare time is utilized as a musician (pianist/vocalist) or as an avid football and basketball fan. I also do weekly volunteer work at the Topeka Correctional Facility for women.
