4th Grade Teacher
Siegrist Elementary

Hello! I am excited to be a part of the Platte R-3 Community. I have five children and a son-in-law! Two are in college and three are in secondary.  I grew up in the Northland and graduated from Liberty High School. I earned my BA in Administrative Management from Missouri State and my Master’s Degree in elementary curriculum instruction from the University of Phoenix. I have been teaching since 2005 and have taught all levels PreK-5th grade. In my spare time you will find me cheering for the Chiefs and Royals, traveling, spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks and loving my dogs! I have two dogs, Ruby and Heidi. My favorite quote is "Never, never give up!" ~ Winston Churchill
