6th Grade ELA Teacher
Barry School 

Hello! I am the 6th grade ELA teacher for Barry School. After getting hired mid-year in January 2018, Barry has been the place for me. I wouldn't necessarily call it fate, but it was an opportunity that fell in my lap at the most convenient time, and I couldn't be more grateful to call Barry my home and my family.

Pre-Barry School, I graduated from Missouri Western State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and a French Minor in December of 2017. During this program, I was able to teach ELA at Body Middle School and Lafayette High School in St. Joseph, and at Platte County High School in Platte City. It was through my student teaching at PCHS that I was able to get hired at Barry mid-year in January of 2018. 

 After I got hired at Barry, I decided to then continue my education at Northwest Missouri State University receiving my Master of Science in Education in Reading in May of 2021. My passion for teaching reading cannot be contained!

I am so excited to share, learn, and grow with you all. I can't wait to meet all of you! Also, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, concerns, or comments!
