    Hello, and welcome to my page.  Here's a little bit about me. 

    I have worked in gifted education for my entire professional career.  I graduated with honors from the University of Florida in 1992 with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, specializations in gifted education and psychology.  I earned my Master’s degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999 with an emphasis in gifted education.  I earned National Board Certification in November, 2002, and renewed it in 2012.  I earned a PhD in Educational Administration at Mizzou. My dissertation was on underachieving gifted secondary students with motivation as the theoretical framework.  I was the Supervisor of Gifted Education for the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from December, 1994 through August, 1999.  I am a charter member and current Chairperson of the State-wide Advisory Council on the Education of Gifted and Talented Students.  This will be my 23nd year in the Columbia Public Schools and my 29th year in public education and I have taught gifted students from Kindergarten through high school.  

    I am passionate about serving gifted students within a school system in which they do not always fit.  

    All EEE curriculum begins in the student's Schoology course.   The best way to contact me is via email.
