Siegrist Elementary

This is my 27th year of teaching - all within the Platte County R-3 District.   I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Emporia State University and my Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Kansas.  

My husband, Lance, and I both grew up in Caldwell, a small (very small) farming community  in south-central Kansas.  My family raised wheat and cattle. 

I currently live in Piper, Kansas (near the Legends).  It will be an adjustment year for us.  My older daughter, Abigail,  just graduated from KU and is going to spend a year with AmeriCorps before she starts her law degree.  My younger daughter, Megan,  will return to Emporia State as a sophomore,  currently working on an education degree.  We have 2 dogs, Lucy and Ember, and a cat, Carmen.
