I was born in Bridgeton, Missouri. I attended Pattonville School District from kindergarten through 12 grade. I earned my Early Childhood Education degree from Webster University in 2007. I was a student athlete and still have a sligthly competetive side. I learned the importance of organization and mulitasking to keep up with the endless demands of being a full time student, an athlete, and a part time employee.
I love my family and friends! You can catch us BBQ-ing and play yard games just about every weekend that the weather will allow. I have a 9 year old spunky dog named Cash, I will be married 3 years this September, I am a Mom to a perfect 19 month old baby boy, and I am actively exploring all of the St. Louis attractions to build fun experiences and memories with my little family.
I started working in the field of education as a substitute teacher. I later took a position as a Teacher's Assistant, and then a specialized support staff, focusing on the areas of math and reading interventions. During the 2011-2012 school year, I became part of the Hamilton family! #HamFam I have genuinely enjoyed the staff I have had the pleasure to work with and the dynamic students that I have been able to learn from over the past 8 years.
I recently decided to persue some of my own educational goals and jumped back into the desk at Webster University. I never knew how much I missed being the student in the classroom. I am very excited to continue to implement the inovative strategies I learned while persuing my Master's in Reading and Literacy. I will continue to take classes this year to further my knowledge.
I am so excited to hit the ground running this school year! Let the fun begin!
