A Little About Me...

This will be my 13th year at Standing Bear Elementary.  I have three children, Tyler, Riley and Katelyn.  Even though the youngest is 18 now, they are a huge inspiration to me and I love being their mom!  Several years ago I completed my Masters in Early Childhood Education through Concordia University.  I am looking forward to being your teacher and another wonderful year at Standing Bear!
