I graduated from Sikeston High School in 2001. I went on to attend Southeast Missouri State University, where graduated in 2006.
I started teaching at Matthews in August of 2006. I am currently in my 12th year of teaching and have only taught at Matthews Elementary! During my time here, I’ve also taught 4th and 1st grades. 2nd grade is by far my favorite!
I married my husband, Joey, in June of 2011. We have 2 children, Brianna and Wyatt. Bri is in 6th grade at the 5th&6th grade center and Wyatt is in 3rd grade at Matthews. We have 2 cats, Klaus and Jax.
When I’m not teaching, I spend most of my time watching my kids participate in various sports. So I’m either at the soccer field, volleyball court, baseball AND softball field, or at a rodeo watching my kiddos do what they love! I also have a love of hand-lettering and calligraphy, so I practice that and make several projects for people in my spare time. Additionally, my family all loves to hunt and fish, so when we can, we like to get outdoors and enjoy that.
