Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching in St. Louis Public Schools for 21 years. I have a Bachelors of Education Degree from Eastern Illinois University. I have a Masters of Counseling Degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I enjoy spending time with Kip, my husband. This year we celebrated 25 years of marriage! We have 3 children: Rachel 22, Kiara 17 and Kip Jr. is 13 years old. In my spare time, I enjoy exercise classes, taking long walks, reading in my backyard, shopping and taking care of my mom.
