    Two Mile Prairie Dogs


    I grew up in St. Joseph, MO and like my 3 older siblings, I went to MU after high school.  I studied Art Education and spent a year abroad after graduation.  My first job teaching was in Warrenton, MO where I was the Jr. High art teacher and assistant soccer coach.  In 1995, I returned to Columbia and MU to pursue my Master’s degree.  I have been working for CPS since 2000 as an art teacher.  I taught at OJHS for 12 years before moving to the elementary level.  I currently teach at Ridgeway Elementary in the mornings and Two Mile Prairie in the afternoons.  When I’m not teaching art, I am making it!  I paint and collage and I have a few works at a few local galleries.  I also enjoy my dogs, living in the country, and gardening.
