About Me

My family is the most important thing to me, next to God. I am blessed to have had my entire family under the roof of LCS. My husband, Matt, works at the high school. I am so proud of his hard work and dedication. Our son, Jack, graduated from LCS in 2013, graduated from WyoTech in Laramie, WY, and currently works in North Platte as an automotive technician. Our daughter, Brady, graduated from LCS in 2016, and is currently studying at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ.  Also a part of our family are Zheyu Qui (Zo) and Zongrui Li, both international students from China who live with us during the school year.

My hobbies include gardening, cooking, and I also volunteer for a local animal rescue organization.

Our family lives on a small acreage north of Palmyra where we enjoy hanging out with our dogs and other critters, going for walks, and sitting by the campfire.

Philosophy of Education

I believe in each and every one of my students. I believe that God has given each of them gifts and talents, and I love getting to help them discover and/or enrich these gifts. I believe EACH child is a treasure, some just need more polishing than others. 🙂 I believe God made ME a teacher, and I am honored to have a part in the lives of my students.
