I have been the librarian at Lincoln Elementary since 2014 after having taught in the classroom for 20 years at a variety of grade levels.
I began my teaching career 1994 in Emporia, Kansas. I taught 4th grade and 7th grade math and science for 3 years in Emporia before moving to Mulvane, Kansas where I taught 3rd grade for 3 years. I also taught 2nd grade for 8 years and 5th grade for 6 years here at Lincoln before moving into the librarian position.
My husband Jason and I have been married since 1993. We have 2 grown boys who both went through the Augusta school system. Jacob, my oldest, graduated from Kansas State University in May, 2018 with a degree in Civil Engineering. He is currently attending graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin to get his master’s degree in structural engineering. Joseph, my youngest, is in his second year as an electrician apprentice. He works for a company in Wichita and is attending classes through Independent Electricians Contractors.
As a librarian it’s no surprise I LOVE to read! I’m always reading or looking for my next great read.
