I began my career in education 31 years ago. I taught middle school English for thirteen years. After I earned by Masters Degree in School Counseling, I was hired at Wichita Northwest High School and was there four years. Then I helped open Olathe Northwest High School and was there three years. I have been at Burlington High School for for eleven years, and I continue to love every minute of it!
Mark and I have married since November 2002. I have one step-son, Wyatt, who will attend North Central Kansas Technical College to major in Deisel Mechanics.
We are also parents to ShoeShine, our precious beagle, who has complete run of our hearts and home. Our lives are never dull with Wyatt and ShoeShine!
