    Jefferson Cyclones


     Hiking in New Mexico










    I grew up in Kansas City and came to Columbia in 1980 to attend MU.  I have a B.S. and M.S. in Agriculture from Mizzou.  I worked at ABC Laboratories, Inc. for 14 years (and still work there part-time during the Summer and week-ends during the school year) then went back to college to earn a teaching certificate in Middle School Science and Agriculture.   I am now also certified to teach Physics First and Biology.  I have been a teacher at Jefferson Junior/Middle School since 2004.   In addition to teaching science my passions include horses, dogs and my grown children, John and Katie.
